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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A while ago I came across a super talented baker, Katherine Sabbath.  She’s in Australia, and makes the most amazing, whimsical, playful and FUN cakes and creations I’ve ever seen.  My daughter and I love to check out her pictures on Instagram, so when my daughter asked if I could make her a “fun” cake […]

Molten Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Molten Cake

I absolutely love a warm dessert.  It takes comfort food to a whole new level, and I feel like it really allows us to slow down and savor what we are eating.  And in these cold winter months, I love to make soup recipes, stew recipes and anything that warms everyone up.   To me, the […]
