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!

Arugula and Quinoa Salad Bowl

I’m not a huge fan of salad but I finally found one that I enjoy regularly.

This bowl was inspired by my favourite option at IQ - they call it Sparta. It’s delicious!


Add as little or as much of the following ingredients as you like.


Arugula,  quinoa, chicken, cucumber, tomato, olives, feta, pickled onions, hummus, fresh basil and balsamic vinaigrette.


For the vinaigrette I simply mixed olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
