Lemon Drizzle Cake

I first tasted this amazing cake at the café where I'm working. It might seem that I'm getting obsessed with lemon cakes and pies, but must say that I am!!! They are so refreshing :) well I think I can't say anything else but GO FOR IT!

Cajun Chicken with Couscous & Green Beans

I've wanted to cook couscous for so long and finally I did it yesterday. I bought ordinary dry couscous at Tesco and cooked it according to packet instructions. Not really difficult:) I found some lovely green beans in the fridge and fried them with onions and garlic. Then mixed it all up with couscous and served it as a side dish with Chicken Drumsticks! Very light summery dinner. I totally recommend it!

Lemon Pie

Hello everybody. I wanted to cook something new for Easter last week, but it never happened. I promise that I will come up with something very soon. Instead I baked this lovely lemon pie, last friday. I can't count how many times I've made it since I moved to Dublin, but I must say that I LOVE it and it's very very simple to make :) Almost all my friends who tasted it told me, that it was one of the best lemon pies they had. I found the recipe in my favourite cooking book. The recipe says that I should use limes, but I find it too sweet so I replaced the limes with lemons instead. If you like refreshing taste of lemons, you should give it a shot :)
