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

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

On Monday, I shared photies of my Memorial Day weekend, which included two really serious cakes. Yesterday, I posted about the Crumble Jumble Cake, so today here is the second cake we brought with us to the barbecue. It’s pretty epic, but def in a good way. It is not only that winning combination of… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Crumble Jumble Cake with Moonlight Frosting

My littles love to tear it up in the kitchen, and I love to watch them. Sometimes their creations are a little sketchy but they are usually pretty good when they follow a recipe! This recipe is in one of their favorite library books, The Little Bitty Bakery by Leslie Muir and Betsy Lewin. Essentially,… Continue reading Crumble Jumble Cake with Moonlight Frosting

Lazy Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I know it’s Wednesday, but my Work in Progress is a pile of puffs, strikingly similar to the pile of puffs you’ve seen repeatedly this summer (I’ve knitted about 130 or so since we moved to LA). Sockdown starts on Saturday and there will be some furious knitting happening for about a year after that.… Continue reading Lazy Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Work in Progress Wednesday

In this post, I’m participating in three WIP Wednesdays; Freshly Pieced, Tami’s Amis and Musings from the Fishbowl. I am aware that it’s already well into the evening on Wednesday, but I really wanted to check in with my Christmas knitting progress and still blog about some tasty creations in the morning. πŸ™‚ This morning… Continue reading Work in Progress Wednesday

Eat Your Fruits and Veggies (and Check Your Oil)

When I was a kid, I wouldn’t eat anything green – unless it was some form of candy or ice cream. This horrified my then strictly vegan father, a hippie powerhouse of health, which very likely amused my mother, who was a Kraft Dinner loving, late night ice cream eating kinda gal (I say ‘was’… Continue reading Eat Your Fruits and Veggies (and Check Your Oil)
