Almond Macaroon Cake

"This is a simple recipe that produces results everyone will rave about. Easy enough to whip up for unexpected company. I also just made this with lemon zest, lemon juice and a bit of ginger, subtracting the almond extract, and everyone loved it. I'll post that recipe seperately."

  1. This was definatly easy and I always have all the ingredients on hand. I made it for the family just because and they thought it was pretty good. I only give it 4 stars because here it is 24 hours later and we still have all the leftovers so this was not a treat that we couldn't get enough of.


I live in a beautiful seaside town in Massachusetts with my husband, 2 daughters and 2 cats. When not experimenting in the kitchen, I'm writing steampunk romance (Not sure what that is? Check out my website!). Recently agented, I hope to see my books in print soon. Can't wait! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Amelia (2 y.o. here) enjoying a cider donut after apple picking. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Maeve (4 y. o. here) I love cooking and can't resist trying to figure out what ingredients went into a good meal. I'm not really one for measuring, and usually just make things up as I go along. My brain tends to shut down at the sight of too many ingredients in a recipe (must be A.D.D. or something) so that's something I'm trying to work on. Most of my recipes are quick and easy to make, since I'm usually trying to get dinner out in a hurry. My family is Greek and my husband is Irish, but also lived in Spain for several years, so my cooking tends to reflect those cultures, but in general we're fairly adventurous. Feel free to zmail me!

Update: Just got a new camera, so hopefully my pictures will improve drastically. I had been using the camera on my cell. Needless to say the pics weren't great. I'll try retaking any that I've already posted.
