make lemon pound cake. I know the saying is make lemonade but when I drink lemonade it makes my throat all flemmy and I can't swallow and who can pass up pound cake made from fresh lemons anyway? I obviously can't as my header attests.
A few years ago when Brian and I were in Hawaii with my parents my dad introduced me to "the" perfect ice cream cone. First of all, you MUST start with good ice cream. Can't be any of the cheapy stuff. I know........and I'm sorry......but when it comes to the finer things in life you can't cut corners!
See this shop we're making out in front of? Technically, we weren't "making out". We were making sure all of the ice cream on the corners of our mouths were cleaned off. There's a big diff. okay? Like I'd do that in front of my baby............
The shop is called "Lapperts" and if ever you are in Hawaii.......THIS is the shop you need to go to for ice cream. Promise, you won't be disappointed. When you walk in I realize you will be assaulted by all the many different flavors and you will get all panicky and your palms will sweat. Not to worry. Just walk up to the counter and place this order. "I'd like a dbl. scoop cone please in one of those lovely waffle cones that you have behind you that you made home made that is covered in chocolate. Yes, that is the one. Thank you. Now, if you would please put first a scoop of chocolate and then a scoop of your lemon that would be swell."
This folks.......is what it is all about. Your eyes will roll back into the far depths of your head and a low moan will escape your lips as you devour the perfect blend of ice cream flavors. Promise!
