Recipe for a Tough Day

Just over one hundred years ago, a journalist named Elbert Hubbard first penned what has now become a proverbial phrase, depicting a positive outlook on life despite its difficulties. 

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 

I had a day frought with frustrating moments yesterday and so I felt the need to step above them. When I am in a funk there is nothing that cheers me more than to putz in the kitchen. 

Since I was pouting about banging my already-injured finger twice that day, I needed an extra boost. Perhaps it was taking the proverb too literally, but I decided I needed to make Lemon Loaf. 

You know what? Freshly baked lemon loaf and a cup of jasmine green tea work just as well as lemonade in beating out the big bad world. ​​

  1. Yes, this is a classic. I love any cake that is drenched with a syrup like this. Makes it special! And I very much agree with the “lemonade” philosophy.
