Friday Favs 6/24/16
Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   They asked for a sportsball cake that said “Way To Go!” They GOT a wedding cake that said: “Way you go” I love the lack of punctuation. It’s basically the cake version of that unflappable old guy on a front porch watching the big action fight tumble down the [...]

Barking Up The Wrong Cake

Barking Up The Wrong Cake
So there I was, looking through thousands of awful wedding cake pics – as one does on a typical Friday night (WHAT) – when I started to notice an odd trend: tree cakes. I don’t mean the beautiful blossoming vines we see so often: Loverly.   And I don’t mean stump cakes, which Jen has devoted a whole tag to in iP [...]

Berrylicious Blueberry Muffins

Thumbnail for 7656
These blueberry muffins are loaded with fresh blueberries, have a fresh blueberry jam swirl throughout and are topped with sugar for a crunchy bite! I’m not a huge breakfast person; in fact, I spent the majority of my high school and college years skipping breakfast altogether. While I end up too famished nowadays to do that routinely, [...]

Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart

Thumbnail for 7654
Strawberry Cream Cheese Tart with a thick layer of cream cheese filling and an easy press-in crust. With a gluten-free option. Tarts are one of my favorite desserts. They’re usually pretty easy to throw together and for me at least, the whole process is so much less stressful than making a pie. Like I said in this key lime pie bars pos [...]

Paleo Hazelnut Muffins + Hotel Bavari...

Thumbnail for 7652
These paleo hazelnut muffins have lots of nutty flavor and a great texture! Plus a review of Hotel Bavaria in Munich. At the end of May, we travelled to Munich for a healthier baking class that I was giving. Since I had never been to Munich before, we made a trip out of it. We stayed at Hotel Bavaria, which I found when searching for hotels w [...]

I've Got Some Good News, And I've Got Some BAD News…
The good news is it’s your birthday, and you get cake!  …………. The plan was considered a success, until Dylan’s parents remembered the four-year-old still hadn’t learned to read.   Thanks to Anony M. for putting every horrible birthday ever into perspective. ***** Thank you for using our [...]

Oven-Fried Onion Rings

Thumbnail for 7649
These oven-fried onion rings are less mess than the deep-fried version, but just as crunchy and delicious! Yesterday, I teased you with a recipe for a copycat version of the dipping sauce that is served alongside the bloomin’ onions at Outback Steakhouse… today I’m back with a killer recipe for oven-fried onion rings. All o [...]

Tell The Doctor To Bring His Sonic Sc...

Tell The Doctor To Bring His Sonic Screwdriver
I understand, bakers. Sometimes it’s an innocent mistake! Maybe you really tried to make a basketball court: And it turned out a little wangish. We get it.   Maybe this was literally the 327th cake you’ve made today, and maybe your space shuttle… …came out more like a shuttlecock. (HEYOOOO)   And so WHAT if [...]

California Roll Recipe

Thumbnail for 7646
I was provided a Sushiquik to facilitate this review and giveaway. Any and all opinions expressed are my own. It’s easy to make your own California Roll at home! California Rolls contain crab, avocado, and cucumber for a fresh and delicious meal or appetizer idea!

Copycat Bloomin’ Onion Dipping Sauce

Thumbnail for 7644
This dipping sauce tastes exactly like the one you’ll find at Outback Steakhouse and is perfect for your favorite onion rings! About ten years ago, I was on a serious Outback Steakhouse takeout bender. Anytime I was in the vicinity of one around mealtime, I would get an order of their chicken tenders (my favorite!). They are wonderfully [...]

Marbled Peanut Butter Skillet Cookie

Thumbnail for 7642
The swirls of chocolate that dance throughout this peanut butter skillet cookie will make you want to dive right in. I know because I could barely wait for a bite once I took this big beauty out of the oven. The ingredients you’ll need are: flour, sugar, brown sugar, butter, peanut butter, vanilla, salt, eggs, baking powder, vanilla and choco [...]

World's Greatest Cake Wreck Gets...

World's Greatest Cake Wreck Gets Drop-Kicked In Our Lap
You may have heard about the Michigan woman who allegedly “drop-kicked” a Kroger birthday cake last week. Apparently she “was not satisfied” (ya think?) with the Batman vs Superman cake she ordered, and tried to go behind the bakery counter to fix it herself. Of course this is a big no-no, so when employees intervened [...]

106 4th of July Recipes

The Fourth of July holiday might not be for another two weeks, but it’s never too early to start menu planning for a holiday (so says my Type A, spreadsheet-addicted personality)! Below you will find all of my favorites when it comes to making 4th of July eats: drinks, appetizers, side dishes and (of course) desserts. There’s a lo [...]

Sunday Sweets For Dear Ol' Dad

Sunday Sweets For Dear Ol' Dad
  How do you capture the essence of every dad in 11 Sweet cakes? Well, you don’t. But this is a great excuse for me to post some pretties I think a lot of guys would like – and a few that I know my own Dad will dig. Like a big steak dinner… That’s actually a cake! (No, really!)   And when it comes to dream c [...]
