Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Pound Cake
This recipe is from the Ritz Carlton Cooking School I went to back in August. I've been working my way through some of my favorite dishes at home, and this lemon pound cake was the first recipe I attempted. I loved the cake when we had it at cooking school, and I wanted to share it with Chicken Legs. The cake turned out fantastic! It tasted just like it did at cooking school. It had a great lemon flavor without being overwhelming.

threaded basil: Lemon Pound Cake I was inspired by reed reader's lemon pound cake, and decided that's where I needed to start.

Snow Ice Cream Yesterday we had our first decent snow of the winter (we had a little earlier on, but no accumulation). We decided to make some snow ice cream with it.

Something that was similar to whipped cream but I wanted it to be a frosting that would hold up when out at room temperature. Lemon Cheesecake in a Jar I’m officially done with work for the school year and I must admit, I’m pretty stoked about doing my own thing for the next few months. No alarm clock buzzing in my ear at 5:45, no last minute wardrobe changes because I’m a clutz with my morning coffee and certainly no more fitting in baking time between chores and dinner.
