Lemon Buttermilk Sheet Cake | #TheCakeSliceBakers

This lemon buttermilk sheet cake is so soft and tender, and it's loaded with the sweet/tart flavor of lemon.

The cake itself contains three tablespoons of lemon zest and 1/4 cup of lemon juice, making it super lemony. You actually beat the lemon zest and the sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer to release the lemon flavor in the zest. Some of this sugary lemon zest is reserved to sprinkle over the delicious glaze on this cake, and the rest is beaten into the butter until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Thai-Style Catfish Burgers

Thai-Style Catfish Burgers with Shrimp and flavored with shallots, chiles, lime, ginger, and garlic served wrapped in tender lettuce and garnished with basil, mint, and cilantro.

Thai-Style Catfish Burgers

I love the Thai flavors in these Catfish Burgers. They are so fresh and light. The burgers are held together by a mousse of shrimp, seasoning, and an egg white. No breading. The trick is to keep everything cold when preparing the patties so that they hold together while cooking.

These Olive Tapenade Deviled Eggs are one of my favorite ways to enjoy hard boiled eggs.

Olive Tapenade Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs were probably my first official introduction to appetizers. In my family, someone always brought a tray for Christmas Eve dinner every year. The trouble with deviled eggs is that you could pretty much ruin your dinner because they are so delicious.

How did Singing Hinnies get their name? 

Hinnie is supposed to be a term of endearment (like "honey") in the dialect of the region, and "singing" is supposed to represent the sound they make as they are cooking on the griddle.
