Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your cake pan - we used four disposable mini loaf pans but you can use a muffin pan, loaf pan or bundt pans - by brushing it with melted butter and lightly dusting it with flour. Make sure to shake out the excess.
  2. Pulse the granulated sugar and lemon zest in a blender until combined. Add the eggs one at a time, then gradually pour in the olive oil and milk. Pulse until it turns into a thin batter, about 30 seconds. Don't over blend or the cakes will be too puffy.
  3. Whisky 1 cup of flour, the baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Add to the blender in 2 batches, pulsing until combined. Stop to scrap the sides of the blender as needed.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan or pans. Bake until the cakes just begin to pull away from the sides of the pan and spring back when lightly touch. This should be about 25 - 30 minutes for separate loaf or bundt pans or 20 - 25 minutes for a muffin pan.
  5. Once you remove them from the oven, let them cool for 10 minutes, then loosen the sides with a small knife and invert the cakes onto a rack. Quickly flip over and let cool for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by whisking confectioner's sugar, lemon juice and butter until smooth, adding more lemon juice if the mixture is too thick. Drizzle over the warm cakes and serve!

Grilled Steak With Chimichurri Sauce

Recipe submitted by Lisa of Panning the Globe.

Chimichurri is the quintessential partner to grilled beef in Argentina, where the beef is renowned and where barbecued beef is considered their national dish. The sauce is a vibrant mix of fresh parsley, vinegar, and spices – very simple and quick to make if you have a blender or a food processor.

Slather it on steak, chicken or fish. Use it as a marinade. I love to keep a stash of chimichurri in the fridge to jazz up burgers and sandwiches, too.

Instructions
  1. Put all the sauce ingredients (everything but the steak) into the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend just until everything is combined and garlic is very finely minced. Set aside.
  2. Put steak in a non-reactive container. Spoon 4 tablespoons of the chimichurri sauce on top of steak and spread it around. Flip steak over a few times to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 1 hour or in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Allow steak to come to room temperature before proceeding (about 1/2 hour out of the fridge). Preheat the grill to high. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper and grill for 3-4 minutes per side, until it is lightly charred on the outside and medium rare on the inside. Let steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice against the grain. Spoon chimichurri on top or serve on the side.
