New Years Eve Birthday Girl!

We celebrate Nana every New Years Eve with a small family Birthday party. This year she wanted Lemon cake.We spent the day together, running around the island and doing lunch with the kids, going shopping and then we came home and we sang to her and had a few gifts .Breakfast will be Martha Stewart's Popovers with butter and Jam ,Thick Smokey Bacon and Orange Juice.She wants her favorite Chicken Pecan from Martha Stewart's Cookbook also for New Years Day Dinner.She loves to watch all of the Bowl games on TV, so I think we are set!.Happy Birthday Nana we all love you! Here is the recipe for the Lemon Cake, it is from The Barefoot Contessa, I think she should of called it Lemon Zinger!! and I would of served it with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!next time I will...Ina makes it in 2 loaf pans but I used a large Bundt pan instead and it was great.. Here are the three recipes I used,If you have any problem reading the last 2 I will be happy to email them to you. Have a Great New Years Day...Aloha
