Lemonade Makin' Mama: Caaaake for your Mamas.... What would Mother's Day weekend be without cake? (An ordinary weekend, that's what.) I've got a well loved cake recipe for you, that I'm sure most people know about, but just in case...I thought I'd share it here. Because this is my number one favorite cake in the entire world. Begin by baking a German chocolate cake according to the box instructions. Don't worry, because by the time you're finished with this baby, it will be almost better than anything.
A Decadent Chocolate Tart You Won't Believe Is Vegan & Gluten-Free We've all heard by now how good coconut oil is for us. It’s one of my core ingredients in many sweet recipes. This decadent chocolate tart is dairy free, gluten free, sugar free and raw. It also won’t give you a nasty sugar spike and crash like many other "clean" desserts, which are laden with hidden sugars.

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. Fourteen for the Fourteenth Fourteen Layer Cake. This is apparently a favorite at family get togethers in the South. Now, I’m from the South and I’ve never heard of such a thing. Actually, when I first heard the name, I didn’t believe it. Fourteen individually baked layers … no way. Who would do that? 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.
Baked Goods I chose to review The Complete Root Cellar Book: Plans, Uses and 100 Recipes by Steve Maxwell and Jennifer MacKenzie. It sounds kind of intriguing, something I think my parents might like. I have never heard of a root cellar before. The closest I come to having a root cellar is keeping my bag of potatoes in my dark cool pantry room, lol. So if this sounds like something you'd be interested in, let me share some info about this book. Of course they've included recipes for a root harvest, and I chose to make a rhubarb coffee cake.
Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookie Bars I’ve talked ad nauseam about how much I absolutely adored peanut butter and jelly as a kid, so I won’t bore you with it again. However, I pretty much lived on the stuff as a kid, and I could totally do it as an adult. I make a good amount of desserts that include peanut butter, but not that many variations on actual peanut butter cookies, and definitely not many that include jelly. From my perspective, once you have a great peanut butter cookie recipe, there’s no reason to try to fix what isn’t broken. How to Make Marshmallow Fondant 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.
Heidi's So-Called Life: Pecan Pie Cheesecake I haven't shared a recipe in eons, so its time to share one with you! I've been terrible about taking food pictures lately, so the one above is the only one I happened to snap with my iPhone (I had to brag to my friends on Facebook what lovin' was going in the oven that night! I couldn't be a bigger dork if you paid me to try...) Anyhow, Lance was on the verge of deploying. No-bake vegan chocolate fudge bars Words and recipe by Mary Lynch Eating a varied diet is one of the most important pieces of nutritional advice I can give to anybody. However, those with special diets have an added complication, and variety is often overlooked. Being restricted in what you can eat can leave you in an unimaginative and unhealthy rut.
