Have you ever cooked with Meyer Lemons? Or better yet, have you ever made a pudding cake? Meyer Lemons and this Creamy Pudding Cake recipe are like a match made in heaven! When my friend Maria and I made this we couldn’t stop grinning as we tasted the first bite out of the oven. perfection.
As you read this, I’m probably on a plane to Haiti or sitting in the airport during my six hour long layover. I’m probably skimming through food magazines or reading, meanwhile anticipating what it will be like to see so much poverty. One thing I’m excited about in Haiti is the freedom from materialism for a few days. A friend mentioned to me the other day that there are hardly any mirrors in Haiti, so you never really know what you look like while you’re there. That could be why all of the kids want to see the pictures you take of them. Many of the kids may not have any idea what they look like… this is just a crazy thought to an average American. For a gal like me who breezes through getting ready in the morning (one of my least favorite things), I’m excited for a little break from that. I’m also excited about the fresh foods I’ve heard so much about… fresh mango and avocado picked ripe the day it’s enjoyed. That will be my little luxury while I’m there.
Also, while I’m in Haiti, I have a few more recipes for you to enjoy, but this one… this one is unriveled among any lemon dessert. I simply couldn’t stop eating it.
And what a better time to try a new tasty dessert than for Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re celebrating with friends, not celebrating at all, or celebrating with a loved one, this is a perfect dessert for the evening.
Valentine’s Day is not usually a holiday Josh and I make a big deal of. It’s one of those holidays that is over-rated and built up with too many expectations to enjoy. We figure everything is overpriced and commercialized during this time and we’d rather show our love regularly for one another than elaborately just one time a year. Having said that, I’m all for an excuse to eat a decadent meal or dessert. Last year we dined at our favorite local restaurant, Fresco Italian Cafe, enjoying every bite of our rich Italian meal and our peaceful meal together. In years past, we’ve made a special meal at home or just ignored the holiday all together. This year we’ll be countries apart but we celebrate each other often enough that the holiday won’t be missed.
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Overrated or Embraced?
