Someone very wise once said that a party without cake is just a meeting. Well, Julia Childs, I couldn't agree more! And chocolate cake is never a bad thing, especially when it's pretty and festive and makes you ohso happy it's the holidays so you can top your cake with things like peppermint sticks and rosemary wreaths. I can't have a party and not have a cake. My go-to the past several parties I've had has been this Salted Caramel Chocolate Cinnamon Cake because it's absolutely delicious. Rich, awesome, . . .
This cake is hands down one of my favorite desserts. My mom made this growing up and I've continued to make it as an adult. I've served this time and time again and have yet to meet someone who didn't ADORE this cake. It is the perfect balance of tart and sweet. The cake is dense, served cold, and moist! It's one of those desserts that you just want to keep eating and eating and eating. You make the cake in a jelly roll pan - the large 11x16 baking sheets with a lip that you can sometimes find at Costco. I . . .
Grandma recipes are the best. You know they're foolproof because they've been baking them for decades, they usually have simple ingredients and directions, and nostalgia certainly makes everything taste better. My Grandma made this cake all of the time growing up, and my Dad has grown to request either this or my other Grandma's cheesecake for his birthday. Sounds like he has a thing for nostalgia too, eh? This perfectly fluffy cake and the rich, nutty icing is seriously easy and simple to make, yet so . . .
This recipe has been on our blog for years and has always been one of my favorite cakes! Many of you know this but years ago, this blog was a group blog with many many contributors. As the blog grew and life went on we narrowed down the contributors to those with serious interest in food blogging. Many of the recipes shared by our previous contributors are still on this blog and so delicious! Because I love this recipe so much I decided to give it a little facelift and bring it forward a few years! (Yes it's been . . .
ENTER OUR BLENDTEC GIVEAWAY BY CLICKING HERE Would you guys believe me if I told you this entire cake was made just by using a blentec? (ok and a few sauce pans) Crazy huh? Our personal blendtec's are literally our best friends for all the girls at oh so. I can honestly say I use mine daily, someday several times a day. Its more than just a smoothie maker. It's a salsa maker, snow cone maker, sauce mixer, dressing emulsifier, and a cake maker. Crepe Cake and all its ingredients were made by this bad . . .
It's officially spring! And Easter is next week! And we love cake! Especially if it's pink... Several Easters ago, I made a Strawberry Coconut Cake that was the prettiest cake I'd ever made! I revamped the recipe last year, and this year went after the same aesthetics with different flavors. With white chocolate. I also did a Cherry and Lime Curd Shortcake, the curd of which I've been jonesing for. But lemon. A trick I love? To prevent your filling from being pushed out the sides, pipe a ring of . . .
A few years ago I made some rainbow cupcakes like this for my son's birthday party and they have become one of the most consistently pinned recipes on our blog. I've received a lot of questions about the who's and the what's about these babies, so I decided to do a separate post with all the specifics. I added the gold coin oreo's because this is the PERFECT treat for your St.Patrick's Day Party. You'll Need:: Cupcakes - whatever is your favorite. Bake and let cool. I found these gold cupcake liners at . . .
If you are growing a garden that contains a zucchini plant you probably have zucchini coming out of your ears right now! I was just visiting my mom and she has so many growing and growing so dang fast! If we forget to check the garden for a day or two and pick the veggies then they end up mammoth size! When they're this large they aren't exactly the best for steaming up and eating fresh. They still have all kinds of uses so don't throw them away. Our favorite is to blend or grate them and use them in breads and . . .
A few months back my parents came in to town. I was hosting a craft night during her stay and she insisted that I make this dip. She told me a co-worker of hers had given her the recipe and that it was to die for. You can't say no to a description like that! With only 3 ingredients, it was made up in no time! I served with with berries, grapes, and Nilla wafers. Needless to say it was snarfed down so so quickly. Everyone loved it! I promise this will be a hit at your next get . . .
Well the snow has finally left Texas and it's not 105 degrees yet, so that means one thing: Spring is here! and spring=cake. right? For some reason, coconut has been associated with Easter. Does anybody know why? I'm dying to know. Is it because of those super rad coconut Easter bunny cakes my mom used to make? The eggs nests? Give me all the Easter bunny cakes and eggs nests. And cadbury eggs. And reese's eggs. And cadbury eggs. I used to make a strawberry coconut cake recipe that I found several years . . .
