I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but the truth is that I stole it from Betty. Betty Crocker. I don’t even know how it happenedโ€”one minute I was Googling light summer dinner recipes, then the next minute I was at the grocery store loading up my cart with chocolate, heavy cream, and strawberries. Crazy how that happens. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But if you’re looking for one more indulgent treat before the official start to summer (or perhaps something to take[Read more]

Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  ๐Ÿ˜‰   This[Read more]

You can also throw in any add ins that strike your[Read more]

Also, I was extremely busy throwing together this gorgeous cake right before my[Read more]

Goooood morning everyone! Today I have for you a cake that I actually made last month but kept all to myself until now. Greedy, I know. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ In all seriousness, I actually made this cake for my neighbor’s mother’s birthday, and since I was in Austin that weekend I didn’t even get to taste it! I heard it was a hit though. As a matter of fact, I was told it was the best cake I ever made. ๐Ÿ˜‹  (Don’t[Read more]
