Though most of this blog contains pictures, it's also a detailed account of my life living with three boys. And yes, they are all boys. Hope you enjoy... they're pretty cute (but often smell).

This is on the Must Bake list for this weekend! Wow! I'll let you know how it turns out...


Ingredients:for bread—1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup freshly squeezed meyer lemon juice (from about 3 meyer lemons)
1 tsp meyer lemon zest
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk
for glaze—1/2 blood orange, juiced
enough powdered sugar to make a thick glaze 
Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and continue beating until smooth. With mixer on low, slowly drizzle in the lemon juice and lemon zest.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add half of the dry ingredients alternately with the milk to the butter mixture. Continue with the other half of the flour and milk and beat until smooth
Transfer to a greased loaf pan and bake for one hour and ten minutes, or until deeply golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely before drizzling with glaze.
To make glaze, combine the blood orange juice with powdered sugar. Drizzle over top.

My parents are still touring the good ole USA. Currently they're in Hilton Head but I had to share this picture they sent. Gotta love our 40 degree weather here in MN but would much rather be on the beach!
