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 Juice With Pistachios and Honey

My husband served this to me the first time I ever visited his house when we started dating. 

He doesn't really know how to cook, but this recipe is one thing he makes well. Of course, it only has 4 ingredients so it's a little hard to mess up. You can serve it with or without ice cream, or cut the recipe in half and make one serving in your magic bullet. I find it easier to clean than the blender.

You can also put your bananas in the fridge ahead of time if you want your drink super cold, but we usually just use them at room temperature.

I posted another version of this recipe last year and called it a smoothie.
