Raspberry Lemonade Pound Cake

http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2014/04/raspberry-lemonade-pound-cake-recipe.html

Bursting with the full flavor of 5 lemons, this Raspberry Lemonade Pound Cake is sure to be on your menu again and again!  The recipe is easy to follow and one to keep in your family recipe file.

Quite possibly my favorite cake of all time.  We brought this dessert to a family get together recently It is bursting with lemon and raspberries!  It all starts with the zest of 4 lemons.  To get every flavorful drop from the lemon I 'peeled' them and then mixed the peel with sugar to release every scrumptious drop of lemon oil.  Then the juice of those lemons are mixed in.

Some days are busier than others and most days I can barely spare 30 minutes for dinner.  Not to mention I think I have the pickiest family ever. I have a list of family approved go-to flavors. You know burgers, pizza, tacos and a few others that are always a winner. I love taking our old favorites and putting a little spin on them to create a whole new dish with a little imagination (and help from the freezer section).

The sounds of summer in the air had me whipping off my grill cover and dusting off my grill this weekend.  Chad has been talking about having a fine steakhouse burger all week.  When I say he has been talking about it, I mean it!  This is how our good nights went last evening.  Me:  "Goodnight baby."  Chad: "So, what do you think about having burgers tomorrow".  Really?

Meat Lover's Pizza Pasta Bake

http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2012/09/meat-lovers-pizza-pasta-bake.html

Meat Lover’s Pizza Pasta Bake is exactly what I like to make when pizza comes up on a busy weeknight.  It’s loaded with ooey gooey cheese, fun twisty pasta, seasoned beef, pepperoni, sausage and bacon… Need I say more? This is our family favorite choice for a weeknight “pizza night” and I am sure it will be yours, too!

We really love pizza and we could eat it everyday!  Munchkin goes crazy for pizza and she lets us know when we are driving past our favorite pizza place.  As in, "what are you doing?  The pizza is back there!!!".  We all love the meat lovers pizza; loaded with pepperoni, beef, sausage and bacon.  It makes my heart go pitter patter.
