I generally don't cook in the summer. Yes, I know how weird that sounds, but I can't stand being hot. The idea of a hot kitchen on even a mildly warm day just sounds awful. I basically assemble and reheat... Salads, simple casseroles and anything that can be boiled. But the other day I saw this recipe for Lemon Olive Oil Cake and could not get it out of my head or rather out of my mouth.. I swear I could almost taste it. And after reading the post and recipe a zillion times, I stayed up late one night and baked the cake. Mine was quite dense (no self-rising flour in the cupboards) but still delicious. Then this weekend I made Paella, the way I like it, (a little spicy, a little wet and with lots of chicken). Now I am dreaming of onions.. Walla Walla Sweet Onions are in season and as soon as the temperature drops I will be cooking up something yummy.
