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!

How I Make Grilled Cheese

Sandwiches are what's for dinner on the nights when I'm too lazy to make anything else. 

Here's how I like to make grilled cheese. You can use any bread and cheese that you like. Tonight I used sharp cheddar and rye. Here we go.

How I Make Grilled Cheese
Makes 1 Sandwich

  • 2 slices of bread
  • cheese of choice
  • butter
  • granulated garlic
  1. Butter both pieces of bread and sprinkle them with granulated garlic. Place the cheese between the slices with the buttered sides facing out.
  2. Heat a frying pan somewhere between medium and medium low heat. Resist the urge to use higher heat, the bread will burn before the cheese melts. Just be patient.
  3. Place the sandwich on the pan and cook until the first side is lightly golden. Flip the sandwich carefully trying not to lose any of the cheese in the process. Cook it until the second side is golden and the cheese has melted. Let it cool slightly before you eat it or you'll burn your tongue.
  4. There you have it. A grilled cheese that almost tastes like garlic bread.
