Friends, Pizza, and Cake

Friday night we had our new friends Megan, Zach, and their baby girl Andi Gibbons over for dinner and a game. We had a lot of fun with them. For dinner we had some pretty fabulous pizza, pepperoni & sausage and canadian bacon & pineapple. I wish I had taken a picture of them. The best part was that it was cool enough to actually bake pizza. For dessert we had some lemon cake

This cake comes from Molly Wizenburg's new book A Homemade Life. It's a delightful food memoir. Read it with sticky notes so you can mark which recipes you want to make. I marked about 30 by the time I was finished. The funny thing about making this cake was the I realized I don't really like lemon cake. Yes, I definitely enjoyed it, and I am definitely going home and eating the leftovers when I finish posting, but while I sat eating it I thought of all the things that would have been better. Steve loved it; it was the tartness of the glaze. It was moist and easy to make. Although I apparantly don't like lemon, if you do, I would recommend it.


  1. You totally crack me up. I love your thoughts: "I thought of all the things that would have been better." Made me smile!

  3. I miss your cooking! Steve's one lucky guy to get to taste test all the new recipes you find.
