Nate had never been to a Starbucks before meeting me. . . but quickly he learned about the delicious goodness Starbucks has to offer (he had to. . . my dad, Clark and I are all obsessed) . . . and now, he loves his 1/2 coffee 1/2 hot chocolate in a MEDIUM cup (he refuses to say 'grande' or heaven forbid call his drink a Cafe Misto!) One of his favorite treats from Starbucks is their lemon pound cake!
So, I decided to make him one!
