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!

Honey Mustard Chicken

This was really delicious! I adapted the recipe a little from How Sweet It Is

One thing I did a bit different is that I brushed the honey mustard on both sides of the chicken once it was cooked, and then let it cook for a minute longer on each side. Jessica brushed hers on at the end.

Honey Mustard Chicken
Adapted from How Sweet It Is
Makes 4 servings

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 8oz chicken breasts, sliced in half
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Combine honey and both mustards. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a nonstick pan over medium high heat.
  3. Dry the chicken with paper towels (a nice tip from How Sweet It Is), and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  4. Fry the chicken on one side for about 4 minutes. Remember we sliced them in half so they're thinner, but if you keep yours thick, you'll need to cook them longer. Flip them over and cook for another 4 minutes. Brush one side with the honey mustard and let the chicken cook on that side for another minute. Brush the other side with honey mustard and let that side cook for another minute.
  5. I'm serving mine with salad, but you could serve it with rice, potatoes or bread. I'm sure it would make an amazing sandwich with all that honey mustard flavour!
