Clementine cake and Marcella's chicken

I was prompted by a bowl full of clementines and lemons to try two recipes discussed on the board this week.

In short: thumbs up to both of them.

The Clementine cake was really very easy (heck, it only has five ingredients) and delicious. Since it keeps (and even improves over a few days) it's great to have in the house for impromptu holiday visitors, and I think I'll make another one to take for my sister, who's bringing home her new baby tomorrow and will undoubtedly both enjoy it herself and appreciate having something to serve to callers. This cake is also a good solution to the question of gluten-free desserts, which comes up periodically. I think it might be even better with a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

Marcella Hazan's lemon chicken was also amazingly easy and delicious -- very moist and flavorful. The drippings made a lovely, lemony gravy, too.

Thanks, everyone, for bringing these to my attention -- they're both going into the rotation.
