On Hiatus | Lemon + Orange Blossom Olive Oil Cake


I’m in the final stretch now.  My feet are kicked up far more than they are on the ground and my favorite pastime is lying partially reclined watching my (almost full-term) baby boy roll and wiggle around happily under my shirt  — especially after a sweet treat like this one.

Yes, it’s fair to say my priorities are already shifting.  Although I love my work, I’ve decided to take an little hiatus to focus on this next chapter of my life.  In the meantime, here are a handful of my favorite food blogs doing some really innovative, seasonal work:  Tartelette, A Sweet Spoonful, Kitchen Confidante, Spoon Fork BaconThe Year in Food, Turntable KitchenOrangette, and White on Rice, to name just a few.

And, for the lemon + orange blossom olive oil cake recipe, check out Glam Media’s newest baby, Foodie.com.

Big hugs, happy eating — and see you soon!

– Elizabeth

I’ve heard so much about olive oil cakes, but for some reason, still never got down to trying it. I’m definitely going to hop over to check out the recipe, it looks brilliant! and also, thanks for all the links to seasonal food blogs, I already read some of them, but am always on the lookout for more seasonal ideas. very glad to have come across this post, and your blog, my friend pointed me this way; great work (:

This looks beautiful. Lemon cake is one of my favorites because it can be really surprising in flavor.
