What My Kitchen Has Been Up To

A few weeks ago I was having one of those days where nothing quite goes as planned.  Needless to say I was a tad bit frustrated.  Andrew surprised me by coming home with a bottle of......

Boy does he know me well.  Chocolate always does a good job a cheering a girl up.  The best part was I had never had it on toast before, so it was a new experience for me. 

Later that same week we found a really great deal on a 3 pan set of spring form pans.  I have been looking for them for a while.  I have been wanting to try a recipe for red velvet cake that has a cheese cake as the middle layer.  Alas I had no pan with which to make the cake.  But now....... (: I just need a good excuse to make it.  Anybody have a birthday coming up?

And lastly, here is one of my recent Pintrest favorites.  I went on a lemon kick there for a bit.  I made lemon bread, muffins and cake. (Not all in the same week and not all for our little family :) This bread was my favorite by far.  It was perfect for a summer treat. HERE is the link to the recipe. Enjoy!


  1. So Pedro's birthday is august 16th and cheesecake and red velvet cake are his favorites! Could I buy you the ingredients and have you make one for him?

  2. Well, Jilly's b-day was recent and Eli's, Anna's and My birthday are all in September. We'd LOVE a red velvet cake with cheesecake as the middle layer!
