Marriage wisdom from Louis L'Amour?

Paris Street: Rainy Day  Gustave Caillebotte
       You want to remember, Peg, just romance is not enough. You may often imagine yourself in love, but always remember you have to live with that person from day to day, in sickness and in health, as they say.
       You will want to be proud of him when you introduce him to your friends, and you want him to be comfortable with them, as you must be with his firends. One must never marry a man thinking he will change or that you will change him. If he does or you do, then he will not be the same man you married, and the less for it.

Gluten Free Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

Sophie made this cake to take to Joe's parents' house this afternoon.  She tweaked a couple of recipes from the web, one for the cake and another for the glaze.

GF Glazed Lemon Bundt Cake

We use the Artisan blend at Peter and Kelli Bronski’s No Gluten, No Problem blog or in their Artisinal Gluten Free Cooking cookbook.
  • 3 cups Gluten Free Flour Mix
  • ½  cup butter
  • 2 ¼ cups sugar
  • 3 eggs + 1 yolk
  • 3 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 c milk
Beat with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • ¼ cup powdered milk
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
Mix dry ingredients together and then stir into wet ingredients.  Beat with a mixer for a couple of minutes until well mixed and fluffy.

Pour batter into greased Bundt pan and back at 350°F for about 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

Allow to cool about ½ hour, and then tip onto a cake plate and cool thoroughly.

When cooled, poke holes with a skewer and coat with lemon glaze, spreading glaze slowly with a spoon so it soaks into the holes a little bit. Continue to scoop up glaze and re-apply until the cake is well-coated.

If you want, you can use a couple of spatulas to lift the cake onto a fresh plate. Cover until just before serving.

Lemon Glaze
