Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Banana Pistachio Smoothie

The first time I ever had this Banana Pistachio Smoothie was also the first time I went for dinner at my husband's place. Of course, he wasn't my husband at the time, but he made this for us that night. 

Sometimes we add a spoon of honey, but the bananas are usually sweet enough if they're ripe.

Here's my husband's cup with his ice cream on top.
