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!

Fresh Garlic and Our Visit to Whittamore's Farm

Last week I took vacation from work. I took the kids out of daycare and we just hung out all week. One day we went to Whittamore's Farm where we picked strawberries, raspberries, beets and peas. The kids enjoyed eating them while I did most of the picking. I love taking them to the farms. There's nothing like fresh picked produce.

Picking peas. It was a bit muddy.

On to the raspberries now.

And finally, strawberries.

I just want to show off this beautiful fresh garlic from a family friend's farm. We roasted some of it and ate it just like that. Delicious!
