Hello, everybody! The Fresh Pioneer is back and I was getting ready to post one of our favorite lemon cakes when I decided to check to see if I'd posted it before.... YEP. So, I'll just paste it here. It's a fun peek at two years ago, anyway!
So, I have a fun little recipe to share, but first... I got my husband a Ninja Prep Master for Father's Day. That's not as weird as it sounds. Or maybe it is. But he got me a blender for my birthday when we were dating so I say turnabout is fair play!
It was neat to hear all the recipes on Julie's Confessions of a Half-hearted Juicer and Jan's Trim Healthy Mama smoothie recipes. With all these excellent fruit/veggie ideas, I was primed to buy this as soon as I saw it in Walmart...
OK, they wouldn't sell it if it wasn't good, right?? At least, that was my theory.
Now, just as we were being so healthy, something came in the mail. Someone (who just might be named TINA) knows that I have a soft spot for Miss Jane Austen.
'So Jane' by Hollie Keith and thought I might want to try the Lemon Drizzle Cake. Well, of COURSE!
I was up to my eyeballs in tasks that day, so my dear 12 year old decided to try her hand at making the cake.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
Here There Be Dragons.
So, that's the tale of the Jane Austen lemon cake that arrived in my mailbox. It was perfectly delicious and lasted approximately 10 seconds.
some images of stenciled tables and I think they're just adorable!
I also got this old dresser a few weeks ago and it's been raining too much to work on it. It's pretty beat up, but I have high hopes!
Projects, projects! And just a few more photos... the very best of all.Emma, Mr. Knightley and Chili-Slaw Dogs is coming out in a few weeks and I got my author copies! Hooray!! Now I'm busy throwing them at anyone who stands still long enough...
AND the uncorrected proofs of the last of the trilogy, Persuasion, Captain Wentworth and Carcklin' Cornbread! It will be out in November and it was such a thrill to hold this book in my hands. I had a wonderful editor (Beth Adams) and assistant editor (Katie Sandell) who helped make this book something special!
Ok, so THAT, my friends, is life as we know it here at the Munoz household. I hope your summer is just as full of sweetness, projects, and excitement!
