Lebanese Lemon Salad Dressing
Delicious! Fast, simple dressing - used it on a salad of mixed greens. Actually used the leftover dressing to toss with waxy potatoes & chill for a brightly flavored cold potato salad. It is very lemony, but such a clean flavor.

Four Egg Yellow Cake
Wonderful cake - I used yolks only and added a fifth egg yolk. I think Crisco shortening is creepy so I used lard. This is an old-fashioned cake - more dense than boxed cakes. It doesn't dome when you bake it - I made it as a fudge-iced 2 layer cake so it was perfect for that. My Dad declared as good as the cake his mother used to make for his birthday as a kid - we celebrated his 70th birthday with this delicious cake.

Simple Syrup
Worked PERFECTLY! I made two batches... a plain white sugar syrup, and another with turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw). I poured the turbinado syrup over crushed mint leaves. I'll let it steep 24 hours before straining out the leaves and discarding them. Gorgeous dark mint syrup, right on time for Derby Day! I can offer my guests a mint julep... OR a mojito!
