Lemon Loaf Cake

Lemon Loaf Cake

Lemon is such a bright, potent flavor that it will shine in any recipe that you use it in. It’s fun to make lemon desserts like layer cakes and lemon meringue pies that both showcase lemon and are also showstoppers. But I find that I don’t always need a showstopper dessert.

I love making spiced, roasted nuts. They’re a great snack to have around for everyday munching and they’re always a hit when you put them out at parties. Generally speaking, spiced nuts aren’t too difficult to make and you have complete control over how salty, spicy or sweet your nuts turn out – control that you just don’t get with prepackaged nut mixes. These Sweet ... Read More »
