  1. Everything's better with real butter. :-)

    Mom always made a nice lemon bread, glazed it as above. I never was that fond of lemon, though, in desserts. (I do like lemonade, like lemon on fish and on fiddleheads, etc.)

    I'm making your chicken/red potato recipe tomorrow, though. I still make it quite frequently, so easy and so good. :-)

  2. Your recipe is a bit different than mine. I love lemon bread and now I am hungry for some. Thanks Twin.
