Recently we have had some warm days around here. Warm days mean a warm kitchen. A warm kitchen means I don’t typically want to bake because it’s going to get too hot. So, to remedy this situation I wanted to experiment more with “no bake” recipes. I have a couple no bake recipes sprinkled throughout my blog, but they are cookies. This time, I wanted to make a no bake cake.
I love surprises. I slightly love surprising people more than being surprised. So, for breakfast this past weekend I wanted to surprise Samuel with something he loves: strawberry shortcake. Now, I eat a lot of sweet goodies for breakfast, but I can’t say I’ve had strawberry shortcake that early in my day. I wanted to think of a way to combine Samuel’s favorite dessert with something acceptable for breakfast. Prepare yourselves because this one is keeper.
I feel as though I may have a problem. My love for breakfast pastries seems to be frequently appearing on my blog. It could be worse right? At least these are healthy breakfast sweets. But seriously, I can’t help myself. I’m at it again. This time, you’re in for a treat. This may be one of the most successful recipes I have ever made. It had rave reviews, and no left overs. Prepare yourselves.
Merry Christmas Eve! Hard to believe it is that time again. In my quest to make simpler desserts around the holidays, I came across some posts about vanilla wafers being transformed into cakes. You may have seen these across Pinterest or on the boxes of vanilla wafers at the store. They seemed very easy, and this fit the bill of easy desserts to make before Christmas. I’m so glad I gave these a try!
Cold, snowy weather always puts me in the mood to bake. There is just something about baking while watching the snow fall that brings me joy. It’s a bonus that it’s the holiday season, and I love baking during Christmastime. So, since it’s snowy and cold, I decided to bake today. I wasn’t planning on baking today, so I didn’t have a whole lot of ingredients to work with. I didn’t really want to drive to the store in the windy snow. So, I decided to make something I’ve been drooling over for a couple weeks now, a low calorie chocolate cake.
