TwD:Lemon loaf cake


Today, tuesday, is the day we are making Lemon Loaf Cake from the book Baking with Julia. And after seeing the film, Julie and Julia, I'm so inspired to make these recipes.

This was a great recipe. The lemon made the cake fresh, great in summer times. Unfortunately here the weather is quite bad, so the feeling while eating the cake is there, the weather isn't.

If you want to taste some of the cake, you ran out of luck. I made it yesterday evening and now it's all gone. Everybody wanted to taste it, because it smelled so great and everyone liked it to.

I've also worked in my  garden today. My strawberry plants are blooming and I think I see the first tiny strawberries. I've planted the potatoes today and the radishes are growing as are the lettuce and the spinach. I can't wait for my first harvest.

If you want to see what the others thought of the recipe you can find the links on:

Next one on the planning is: Hungarian shortbread. I'm curious what that will be.

See you around.

FFwD: Sardine Rilette


After a few weeks of low blogging I'm back (at least I hope I am). It has been a crazy couple of weeks with a lot of things going on, but I'm hoping that I'm back on track.

This Friday on the program is a Sardine Rilette. Nice for my Omega-3 intake, so I took my fishing rod and went on Sardine hunt (Not really, I just went to the groceries and bought two cans, sardines don't live in my neighborhood.)
It was a very easy recipe to. In the recipe was written that I had to use quite a lot of lemon.
I didn't do that. I squeezed a little bit of lemon juice and tasted it and for me that was quite enough.

I liked the taste of the rilette. I ate it for lunch on my sandwich and got a little bit for tomorrow.
My children didn't even try, so I've got their share to.
I think it's something different to give on a party with a cracker to serve it on. It certainly is approved.

I'm curious if the rest of the group liked it, you can see the others on: www.frenchfridayswithdorie.com.

Have a nice weekend and yes, I followed Dories instructions for serving.
