Lemon cakes and well wishes

It was an incredibly dreary day when I made this, and yet I could not allow it to permeate the purpose of this cake. The summer weather has been odd, abruptly throwing rain in the middle of heat waves whenever it felt like it, like a child throwing a tantrum, or maybe a person splashing …

If only life were as easy as braiding lemon breads

How goes the first couple of weeks of the new year for you all? Mine has been one heck of a roller coaster ride. Sometimes when I lay down to sleep at night, I feel shocked at how much has happened in the last 11 days since the year began. Work has been absolutely draining …

A lesson on looking beyond the surface

Young people are naive. And I don’t say that to sound old. I am still quite young myself, but the older I grow and the more my mind opens up to new and different perspectives about life, the more I realise how true this is. A lot of young people seem to think they have …

I really like how lemon bars make me feel

I wonder when this seed was planted. The more I think about it, the more I realize just how unhappy I have been feeling with my life. And I don’t mean it in the aspect of comfort and luxury. I’m grateful for those, sure. I can’t discredit my parents for giving those things to me. …

The Super Lemon Ice Cream cure

Feeding my lemon obsession with Maya’s Lemon Thins

I love lemon-flavoured treats. I’m certain I’ve mentioned this before. A lot of times, pastries that have the right lemon kick to them wind up at the top of my favourites list. I just can’t get enough of that lovely, sour tang! It gives such a character to what otherwise would have simply been something …

{Go With the Flo} Lemon-Scented Pull-Apart Coffee Cake- an all-time fave!

I’m sure we all have that one beloved food item; the one that makes us swoon or feeble in the knees just thinking about it. I was pretty sure mine was going to involve dark chocolate, and yet I have proven my self-control in the presence of it again and again. And although dark chocolate …

A refreshing twist to pasta

When life gives you lemons… Make lemon pasta. Ha! Bet you didn’t see that one coming! I literally had too many lemons in the fridge, and after some chastising from my Mum about my penchant for stocking up on more baking ingredients than I need, I decided to step away from the KitchenAide to find …
