There are some things we learn as small kids, often times through observation, and they end up becoming absolute truths for us.
One of such things I have learned from my grandmother Nelci: everytime we receive a visit at home, or every time someone from home is coming back from a trip, we make something special to wait for that person. Every time.
It happened that 98% of the time the special thing was to bake a cake.
So in my head, receiving a visit is associated to baking cakes.
A few days ago, I received two very dear people (hi Ire, hi mom), so there it is, lemon and poppy seeds cake.
Of course I got this recipe at technicolor kitchen, the kingdom of sweets made with citrus fruit, and for me, the perfect place to find something good to do with my recently-acquired seeds.
