When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, or you can make lemon olive oil cake topped with candied lemons and pistachios. It’s a moist cake with a rich taste and a tangy bittersweet topping. The nuts add a slight bit of crunch for texture and added taste. I like to serve my cake with yogurt and more olive oil or honey.

I speak 5 languages, but my favorite way to communicate is through the universal language of food. I translate food to be more approachable and accessible for the everyday cook. I didn't grow up with a lot, so I’ve always loved thrifting and finding a good sale. That also shapes my approach to cooking: I try to make most of my recipes as affordable as possible, and that is what my SCRAPS newsletter is about.
