Luscious Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake With Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I have been on quite the citrus baking kick lately.  Something about spring (or summer, we are in the mid-90’s in Phoenix!) just calls for the refreshing flavors of citrus.  Lemon is an absolute favorite for me and this Luscious Lemon Cake is both easy and delicious. Not only is the cake lemon, but the […]

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake Recipe

One of my all time favorite cakes of all time is carrot cake.  It is such an amazing combination of flavors and textures.  For whatever reason, I seem to always save carrot cakes for Easter, and for my family it is an Easter “must have” dessert. I’ve recently partnered with the folks at In The […]

Make Ahead Cinnamon Rolls

Easy Cinnamon Rolls

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Philadelphia Cream Cheese. All opinions however are mine and mine alone. Cinnamon Rolls have always been a favorite family breakfast on holiday mornings for my family.  I still remember watching my great grandmother roll and knead cinnamon roll dough around the holidays when I was a little girl. I […]

Orange Loaf

Easy Orange Loaf Recipe

Orange Loaf, Lemon Loaf, Lemon Rolls.  Clearly I’ve got citrus on the brain. And on my countertop.  My Dad planted quite a few citrus trees when I was in middle school, and 20+ years later (okay, more than 20, but let’s not count), he always has a LOT of citrus to give away.  And being […]

Lemon Loaf

Iced Lemon Loaf

You know that saying, when life hands you lemons?  Sometimes it’s literal and sometimes it’s figurative.  This week I had an abundance of both kinds.  Life was handing out some and my dad was handing out some.  Thankfully my Dad’s lemons are the actual grow on a tree variety.  And what do you do when […]

Lemon Rolls

Lemon Roll Recipe

It’s no secret that I love cinnamon rolls (and make them often).  Wanting to shake things up a bit, I decided that it would be nice to make Lemon Rolls for a change.  Lemon is such a great flavor for spring, but I’ve never tried it in a breakfast type of food.  Oh my, I […]

Lighter Carrot Cake

Lightened Up Carrot Cake

One of my must make desserts every spring is carrot cake.  I adore carrot cake, and it’s an Easter favorite for us.  Unfortunately, even with all those carrots, carrot cake is not exactly what one could call health food, at least with most recipes.   I’ve always been a big fan of swapping out some of […]

Grasshopper Pie

Grasshopper Pie

I love all of the fun holidays in spring such as Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.  They are simple days where it’s fun to do something special for the kids.  We don’t do anything big, but little special touches are fun and things that I hope the kids remember when they are older.  For […]

Katherine Sabbath Inspired Cake

Katherine Sabbath Style Cake

I had SO much fun trying to recreate a Katherine Sabbath inspired birthday cake for my daughter’s birthday last week. If you don’t know who Katherine is, go check out her Instagram.  It’s kind of like Willy Wonka and Candy Land ran into a cool and ridiculously talented baker.  After cake stalking her Instagram for […]

Make Meaning Party

Make Meaning Party

When I asked my daughter what she wanted to do for her 12th birthday this year she replied, “make candles”.   That was an unexpected reply, but one that sounded like fun, so it was time to put together a candle making party. Before my oldest daughter was born, I made both soap and candles as […]
