As a homemade baker who’s baking from scratch 99% of the time, it’s great to have Bauli Cakes around the house for those moments when I want to whip up a delicious sweet treat that’s quick and easy! As I was lounging around this afternoon, I had a craving for this super simple but yummy Trifle that I typically make with angel food cake. Then I remembered that I have a shelf full of various flavors of Bauli Cakes at my disposal which would be a lovely replacement for the angel food cake (plus they’re very pretty looking).

Hoppy Easter! What a beautiful weekend in Chicago, I hope it’s as lovely as it is here where you are!
It’s been just over a year since we’ve moved into our home-sweet-home in Chicago… just in time for Easter. Last year during Easter, my dad and his wife came to spend the holiday with us and they’ve come back to join us again this year with their two new puppies! Typically during the Holidays we’re off to visit our families in Michigan, so I’m grateful for new traditions in our own home. We will have a house full of family, friends and fur babies to share Easter dinner and dessert with. Continue reading “Classic Carrot Cake”

I’m grateful for this sweet little pie for this reason. It turned out so pretty, smelling like heaven, and delicious so I can’t wait to share this recipe with you! Happy Pi(e) Day!

Happy Sunday! It’s starting to warm up a bit here in Chicago so I’m looking forward to getting outside a bit more today. Spring is just around the corner and I can’t wait to enjoy it with some new outdoor projects around the house, planting herbs and flowers, and playing outside with Zoey.
Last night we had plans to attend our friends housewarming party, and I received a special request to bring Aaron’s famous chocolate chip cookies (don’t worry, I’ll blog this soon), and my moms famous cheesecake. With Spring approaching, I decided to put a little spring twist on moms original recipe with the addition of more lemon flavoring and a graham cracker-streusel topping!
