Chocolate Almond Carrot Cake

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I really wanted to make a cute cake for Easter this year, but I wanted something new…something different and decadent. For me, decadent almost always requires chocolate. It’s how my brain works. What’s something quintessentially ‘Easter’ that would be better than ever with chocolate added? Duh. Carrot cake. Seriously, it just got so much better. […]...

Valentine’s Day is when he surprises you with your favorite soda that you never ever drink anymore, but it’s pizza night, and pizza and soda are BFFs. It’s managing his Eve Online training skills when he’s far, far away with shoddy Internet. Valentine’s Day is when he brings home teeny soda bottles from Italy, just […]...

I’m basically trying to burn off approximately 2,000 croissants from our trip to Spain last week. Seriously, you cannot go into a building in Spain and not find a croissant. It’s the best thing ever. Of course, there’s also all manner of other pastries, but I mean…croissants. We had large ones, plain ones, chocolate ones, […]...

Summer cake! That’s what this is. I’m declaring it the Official Cake of Summer. Or the Official Breakfast of Summer works, too. Because it’s summer. You can have cake for breakfast. And also, it’s coffee cake. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t gladly consider coffee cake a breakfast food. For real....

The Hubster had a birthday last week. It wasn’t like a big milestone birthday or anything, although…it was an elevensies birthday. Those are always fun. We both had elevensies birthdays this year. Anyway, it wasn’t a milestone, but since he was still overseas for his birthday last year, I was super excited to make the […]...

Did you know that today is Ron Weasley’s birthday? Did you also know that Ron is my favorite character of the Trio? He is. I love him. He is my Wheezey. No, he’s not perfect. Yes, he can be a bit spoiled and out of touch, but he’s also funny, adorable, and more loyal than […]...

Uh…so it’s December 21st. And the world continues to turn. How many people are feeling sheepish today? I’m not, personally. I mean, really? Aztecs (or Mayans…oops) predict the Apocalypse? No. But seriously, I would love to be a fly on the wall in a house with one of those dooms day prepper people. You know […]...

Did you know that today is Star Wars Day? You know, because it’s…May the fourth. I love it. I love, love, love it. Every year, it just cracks me up. All day long. And I’m totally that weirdo that walks around saying to everyone she sees that day, “May the fourth be with you!” Shockingly, […]...

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for our favorite new game! “Where in the World is Bakingdom?” Actually, “Where in the World” is pretty inaccurate, I guess, since it’s actually “Where in the U.S.,” but it doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it? Nope. Not really…I’m sticking with “world.” So. That picture up there? […]...
