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!

Lentil & Kale Stew (Vegan)

I kept the flavours in this stew simple by using just salt, pepper and a pinch of rosemary.

Lentil & Kale Stew
Makes 2 Servings

  • 1 leek, rinsed and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • ½ cup dry lentils (any colour)
  • ½ teaspoon pink salt
  • black pepper
  • pinch of dried rosemary
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (more as needed)
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 small potato diced
  • ¼ cup frozen green peas
  • 1 - 2 cups chopped kale
  1. Saute the leek in avocado oil for about 5 minutes until translucent.
  2. Stir in the lentils, salt, pepper and rosemary.
  3. Stir in the broth and allow to simmer until the lentils are almost done.
  4. Stir in the carrot and potatoes and simmer for another 5-10 minutes until the lentils and vegetables are cooked through.
  5. Stir in the peas and kale and cook until the kale is wilted and the peas are heated through. There shouldn't be much liquid at this point, it should be like a stew. If your stew ever gets too dry, you can always add a splash more broth as needed.
