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!

Oven Fries

My kids could eat oven fries every day. They're so yummy! We love to use yellow potatoes, but white or red potatoes would also work.





Oven Fries

Ingredients
  • potatoes
  • olive oil
  • seasonings
Directions
  1. Cut some potatoes into fry shaped strips. 
  2. Soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes. I have soaked them for a few days so I don't have to cut potatoes every day. Soaking makes a huge difference. The fries don't dry out inside like they sometimes do if you don't soak the potatoes first. 
  3. Dry the soaked potatoes thoroughly with paper towel or a clean kitchen towel. 
  4. Toss with a touch of and seasoning of choice. I like dried rosemary, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. 
  5. Bake in a preheated 425F oven until golden. Flip once during cooking, and be sure to use parchment so they don't stick.
