Lemon Loaf

We also made a Lemon Loaf in the South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club.


Due to time and oven constraints, the Lemon Loaf did not finish in time for lunch. Almost all the recipes for this kitchen require to use the oven, except for the salads. Michelle will freeze the loaf for enjoyment in the next kitchen.
