Lemon Loaf

So, I made this for Easter Sunday and it was a big hit. It was fairly simple to make and I thought it would go well with the spring theme.

I didn’t take too many pictures of the steps since I had a lot going on for Easter dinner and was also making a lemon ricotta cake with strawberries.

My only complaint about the lemon loaf was that it was much darker on the outside was darker and more crustlike than I expected. I was hoping for more of a cake crust. But the center was to die for!  My fiance even put some whipped cream on and it was great. I think fruit would be a great compliment to this dessert or even for breakfast!


Pizza Rustica

OMG! This was soooooo good! It was nice making something that could be eaten for dinner instead of all of the desserts. I loved the crust.

I followed the recipe without deviation. It wasn’t difficult to make and didn’t take much time. My lattice isn’t perfect, but this is a rustic dish right??? But I may add some additional veggies next time!

This was before it was baked.

This tasted so great, that my fiance actually took it with him for breakfast – and he  normally doesn’t like ricotta. It’s a texture thing for him – so having it cold it was great!
