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!

Pulled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

I was looking for something light tonight and came up with this. My 4 year old said it was "the best chicken ever". I'm so glad she feels that way because it was also the easiest chicken ever.

On Monday I roasted a few chicken breasts to have in the fridge for whatever. All I had to do was reheat the chicken and add some sauce.
