Week-end Wrap Up

Well, first, there has been a panic situation and everyone ran out to buy gas because they heard that the area would be out by Saturday. So guess what happened? As CNN called's a self-fulfilling prophecy. And I won't lie to you...I had half a tank on Friday but stopped to fill up.

Saturday and SEC football! Yeah! Tennessee lost to Florida, but Alabama "rolled" over Arkansas. Can I get a whoop whoop?

And today was Sunday, which meant I did some heavy cooking. I love cooking on Sundays. I spend the afternoon up to my elbows in knives and cutting boards and pots and pans and mixing bowls and measuring cups. Today was no exception.

One thing I made today was The Pioneer Woman's Lemon Yogurt Cake and you can check the recipe here.


Last fall I had an abundance of lemons after my parent's anniversary party and I made lemon marmalade. It didn't really set up, but I've used it a few times as a sauce and it was lovely...very tart. So I used it today in lieu of orange marmalade and it was perfect! I love the texture of this cake and the powerful punch of lemon that comes with it. I can't even imagine adding anything to sauce, no ice cream, no fruit, no whipped cream. It's perfect as it is.

So this recipe gets to thumbs up from me! I hope you give it a try.

Lemon Yogurt Cake sounds so good! I do lots of cooking on Sundays too, it's just the perfect day for it. I made some Coconut Lemon Bars today so it looks like we both had lemon on the brain!
