This cake is all about the iconic spring flavor combination that we all love and hold dearly in our hearts. This feeds a crowd, or fills your family’s lunchboxes all week long.
I am pretty darn pumped that it is officially rhubarb season. My rhubarb is HUGE! So big that I am reluctant to cut into it. Ha- just kidding! I can’t wait to chop those stalks down. Really though, I am waiting for strawberry season to hit so I can make the beloved flavor combination of strawberry rhubarb. I always hold my breath, just hoping my rhubarb will make it through to strawberry season since they are so far apart. In the meantime, while I impatiently wait for local strawberries, I like to cut away at the smaller stalks of rhubarb for different treats. And I’ll occasionally…Read More

If you are in need of a one-of-a-kind Easter dessert, here you go. Carrot cake is classic Easter, or at least Spring dessert. At least that is how I envision its perfect placement. Not that I actually follow my own thought line. I almost never make carrot cake for easter. I usually find something that seems way more exciting, or at least peaks my interest a little more than boring ol’ carrot cake. Now, my question…Read More

Is anyone else super excited about the fact that the final season of Game of Thrones is starting TOMORROW? I am super pumped, if you couldn’t tell. My husband and I didn’t jump on to the GOT band wagon until years after it started. I decided to start by reading the books I borrowed from a friend. I like to try to read the books first, but I couldn’t wait. We ended up starting the show before I read all the books. I guess it didn’t matter any way since the show surpassed the books. I consider myself lucky because we were able to binge watch the seasons without waiting a year before the next season…Read More

Hello Christmas cake! Or if you consider gingerbread and/or cranberries to be a Thanksgiving flavor only, then make a mental note to make this for Thanksgiving next year! I like the idea of gingerbread and cranberries being ideal flavors for both holidays. This flavor concept came to me in the beginning of this year, but then it kind of got forgotten during the summer months and warm weather foods. When…Read More

Addicting apple spice cake that encapsulates Fall at its height. Warm spices and cream cheese frosting come together to create the idea fall dish. And it makes your house smell divine to boot.
It’s obviously taken me way too long to share any apple recipes. It seems like things all of a sudden got super busy. Between canning, kid things, meetings and awesome outdoor adventures with a good friend, blogging gets pushed to the side. Oh and laundry. Because we all know how that can become an all-consuming endeavor. With five of us in the house, laundry is never..Read More

Earlier this year, I had some cake motivation, and I wrote a small list of a couple of cakes that I really wanted to make this year. Of course they were all the intense little Milkbar method cakes. My favorite, if you haven’t noticed. They allow you to pack a lot of punch into a small cake. So, I sat down and brainstormed flavors and layers. The first cake to be crossed off the list was…Read More
