Life Should Be Cake

A Minor Oversight

A Minor Oversight
Your first mistake, my dear Wreckies, was in being so positive and supportive of yesterday’s post that some of you even asked to see some of the posts John *won’t* let me publish. So again, in my defense: you asked for it.  Here’s one that’s been languishing in my drafts folder for nearly a year, and it still ma [...]

Stuffed Pepper Soup

Stuffed Pepper Soup is loaded with the familiar flavors of traditional stuffed peppers and comes together in one pot. Serve up this hearty soup with crusty bread for the perfect weeknight meal!

7 Minute Frosting

Thumbnail for 10527
7 Minute Frosting – The classic meringue or marshmallow-like frosting that is light, fluffy, and holds perfect peaks. Great for cakes and cupcakes! There are so many different frostings in this world that I feel like I could devote at least an entire month to talking about all of them (maybe we should do that??!). While I use variation [...]

20 Paleo Muffin Recipes to Start Your...

Thumbnail for 10525
It seems like people are really into muffins at the beginning of the year. Or maybe they’re not, but they’re just more interested in muffins than the other sweet recipes I have on the blog like cookies, brownies and cake. Are people still tired of desserts six weeks post-Christmas? I’m not. Never was. Here are some of my f [...]

A Team Effort

A Team Effort
Ever wonder how a Cake Wrecks post gets written? Well, sometimes, it’s like this:   Me: “I need a post idea. Any funny holidays coming up?” John: [googling] “Hmm. Oh. Here we go: it’s National Self-Help Group Awareness Month.” Me: “Isn’t a ‘self-help’ group an oxymoron?” [...]

The Weekend Dish: 2/3/2018

Thumbnail for 10522
Happy February weekend! I hope your month is off to a fantastic start! What are you up to this weekend? Today we’re celebrating my father-in-law’s birthday and tomorrow we’ll be relaxing at home and watching the Super Bowl. Planning a couple of easy crock pot recipes and some chips and dip, of course! Rooting for those Eagle [...]

Chasing Shadows, Deja Vu The Third Again The 2nd
[alarm clock clicking to 6:00 AM] [Sonny & Cher caterwauling to I Got You, Babe]   Ok, Campers, rise and shine! ‘Cuz it’s Groundhog Day! Or, as Brenda here knows it: “Groad Hogs Day”   Today is the day that we celebrate the.. day…by having this cheeky little fella: aka “the guy with t [...]

I Eat Terror For Breakfast

I Eat Terror For Breakfast
Assuming “terror” is another word for cake, of course. Which, at least with these cakes, I’m pretty sure it is.   Sure, this may look like a fuzzy potato wearing a Skeletor mask and a literal banana hammock, but I think it’s supposed to be a monkey. (Yes, a monkey.) Which kinda makes Shara’s Curious George W [...]

Pizza Dip

This easy pizza dip recipe features layers of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, pizza sauce, and your favorite pizza toppings. Always a hit! One of my favorite weeks of the year (aside from the week before Christmas) is the week before the Super Bowl. At no other point in time is it possible to find so many amazing appetizer and dip recipes. R [...]

Happy Birthday, Cake Pops!

Thumbnail for 10516
Cake Pops turned 10 years old this week (can you believe it?) and today is also National Cake Pops Day! YAY!!! So, to celebrate I decided to make what else but little birthday cake shaped pops. On January 28, 2008 I posted my first round cake pops here on the blog and then a few days later on February 1 of that year, I posted the first shaped [...]

Throw The Bouquet (Away)

Throw The Bouquet (Away)
I can’t tell you how many wedding Wrecks I’ve seen salvaged with nothing more than a few well-placed bunches of fresh flowers. These…are not those saves. Believe it or not, that’s a 3-tiered cake. See how effectively the gigantic seed pods hide the flaws in the top tier? They ran out for the bottom two, though, and w [...]

BEB Favorites: January 2018

Thumbnail for 10507
Hello hello last Monday in January! Welcome to my first favorites post of the year; I’ve done these sporadically in the past, but am hoping to make them a monthly fixture here; there are always so many things I want to share with you, but more often than not I forget about them before I get the chance to talk about them! Here’s to [...]

Coconut Flour Brownies

Thumbnail for 10505
These coconut flour brownies are super fudgy and are also paleo, grain-free and dairy-free! Topped with chocolate fudge frosting. Scroll to the bottom of the post for a how-to recipe video. Before you read any further – I just wanted to say that the pictures don’t do these brownies justice! They’re much fudgier than the over [...]

The Weekend Dish: 1/27/2018

Thumbnail for 10503
Is it really the last weekend in January? I feel like we just took down Christmas decorations, and now we’re knocking on the door of the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day (and Mardi Gras!). Crazy! You’ll be thrilled to know that I’m fiiiiiiiinally making my father-in-law’s famous eggplant Parmesan for dinner tomorro [...]

A "Dreme" Come True

Thumbnail for 10501
“Welcome back to round one of the National Wreck Bowl, folks. Our reigning champion, Pat Wüfflehausen, has filled his pastry bags and is ready to attempt a new world record. “Greg, this is obviously a huge challenge for Wüffelshausen. What do you think he’s feeling right now? “Well, he ate the same lunch we d [...]
