Orange Creamsicle Cake

The second cake of the year! It was actually a happy birthday cake for my friend Brigid! Happy Birthday, Brigid! It’s wonderfully simple and could not possibly be easier to pull together. No really. It has three ingredients – 4 if you include the orange zest – you really should, it makes it more legit… Continue reading Orange Creamsicle Cake

Christmas 2013 Rewind

Oh my goodness, this Christmas season really seemed to fly by faster than others have! I think it’s that this year we are involved in more activities than ever before.

I’m trying to avoid random baking this month since I… Continue reading 28 Sleeps till Halloween with Halloweeny Chocolate Chip Cookies

Strawberry Shortcake

It started with beautiful strawberries. Huge, bright, lovely strawberries that inspired me to whip up a strawberry shortcake. For a split second, I thought of making an angel food cake with this but if I’m honest, as natural as angel food cake is to pair with fruit, I don’t really love it all that much.… Continue reading Strawberry Shortcake

Menu Monday with Apple Cobbler, also where did summer go?

Amazing to me that summer break is almost over for us! We had intended to be pretty laid back this summer (yeah, yeah, I know I can’t) and get some summer school work done. The first two weeks of summer break we ran around South Bay hanging out with my dear friend Jennifer and her… Continue reading Menu Monday with Apple Cobbler, also where did summer go?
