Facebook is a marketing platform many believe, at first, to be “free.” As they inevitably learn, nothing in life or business is free.

Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake | alexandra's kitchen

I swear buttermilk is magic. I’ve dwelled on this before. Buttermilk seems to turn everything to gold. Super-moist, super-delicious gold. Anyway, I needed a simple, summery, breakfasty, cake-like-but-not-dessert-like recipe to make this morning.
Not Derby Pie Not Derby Pie It’s been quiet around here this week, since I’ve been tied up with other things and haven’t had much chance to cook. Still, the weekend is here. That should give you some time to make this lovely semolina bread, or perhaps these gingerbread oat waffles.

Autumn Delight Cake Autumn Delight Cake So it turns out this cake has more ingredients than any cake I have ever made! And when I started to write the cake description in the blog title, I realized that there are 18 words and two ampersands in the name. Yep.

Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls

Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls So… I didn’t just make one outrageous cinnamon roll last weekend. I clearly made two. I think this is the end of the cake batter era. Unless I come up with something even more ridiculous to create with a cake batter flavor, I’m pretty cake battered out.
This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar.

Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies « Betchacanteatjustone's Blog This just may be my new favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie. It’s made with butter AND cream cheese. It’s dense, chewy, chocolatey and very delicious. I had half a package of cream cheese that needed to be used up and I really wanted chocolate chip cookies so I figured surely there must be a recipe… a quick google blog search led me to baking blonde and a really delicious recipe that’s definitely being added to my regular cookie repertoire!

Nutella Mug Cake

I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. Nutella Mug Cake
