I have been baking, I always bake. I usually take some photos - they usually aren't that great. But nevertheless, here they are: Chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Peanut butter Snickers bars.
Oh yes!! Recipe from Picky Palate
Rhubarb Snacking Cake from Smitten Kitchen. Isn't it pretty?

Cucumber Loaf

I know, I know, cucumber?! But I'm telling you, cucumber bread is the new zucchini bread. True story. My darling sister recently brought me a bunch of vegetables; vegetables I do not normally eat, like radishes and a cucumber. The radishes were roasted with carrots (delicious) and the cucumber was combined with lovely ingredients such as flour, sugar, cinnamon and eggs and baked in a loaf pan.
I simply took a zucchini bread recipe and subbed grated cucumber for the zucchini called for. Even more delicious than roasted radishes.

Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

I know it's been awhile (give or take a few months) since I've made an appearance on my own blog... but a while ago I was reminded why I started this blog in the first place: because it is fun to take photos, write, make delicious food and then share that. And blogs are fun to read (goodness knows I love reading them) - so it is my goal that this blog might be fun for someone out there to read and look at. Here's hoping...

Two Peas & Their Pod have the recipe posted. We

We made a cake!!!

This past weekend my sister and I baked a cake for my father's birthday. Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party cake filled with lemon curd and decorated with 7-minute frosting and fresh raspberries. It makes me think that spring is almost here!
