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!

One Sunny Saturday

It was so beautiful outside on Saturday! The kids were in the pool most of the day and I played around with the camera a bit in between loads of laundry. The natural light makes such a huge difference. I wish I could take all the food I make outside and photograph it, but most of the time it's already evening and I don't have the proper equipment to take perfect photos in my kitchen. I've been reading articles on food photography so I'll have to work on that. I should probably also learn how to operate my camera instead of guessing what the various settings do. 

Longan Fruit

Grape Nerds. Something I hadn't had in ages!

This tree in my mom's backyard is pretty big. The birds love it.
This little one got the best spot.

Sweet summer watermelon. Yum!
I MUST try to make watermelon slush one day instead of paying $7 at the mall.
