I have some fun stuff coming though- flower garden clean up, vegetable gardens, chicks (arrive after Easter!), and John is almost done with his semester which means we will be doing more wallpaper stripping, painting and bookshelf construction. So hopefully I'll have things to actually blog about.
So a few weeks back, I made lemon cakes to celebrate HBO's new series, Game of Thrones. HBO has done an excellent job promoting the series, and in fact, had food trucks in NYC and LA serving Westeros-inspired food, along with Lemon cakes. The recipe was released too, and of course, I had to make some.

They tasted really good. I mean REALLY good. Very lemony- but not too sweet. The recipe was for 6 cakes, but I only had four 4 oz ramekins, so I used a very large ramekin to make one big lemon cake. I gave that one to Hodor...I mean my husband. Actually we split it, and saved the remaining four for dessert that night. Liam liked it, but Lilia didn't really like it that much. I guess she really is like a certain tomboy character in the series.
I'm hoping to make more this weekend to enjoy on Sunday during the premier. I can't believe it's less than 72 hours away. I think it's been a really long time since I've looked forward to something on TV as much as I have with Game of Thrones.
