I was a little late on July 4th posting…but better late than never, right?
My daughter, Claire, keeps finding recipes she wants to try. That seems to keeps us busy at the store and in the kitchen. While she has changed her mind from wanting to be a chef (at 11 years old) to now wanting to be an event planner…I love seeing her love for food and baking continue! Conversations, laughter and memories are made in the kitchen.
OLD GLORY PIE. Find recipe here. I changed the recipe a bit and used fresh cherries, strawberries and blueberries. YUM!
One Cupcake can say a lot of things:
I am thinking of you
You are sweet
We are friends
You are worth it
I care about you
and last but not least…Happy Birthday!
One of my most precious friends has a birthday in April. She is so kind and always willing to taste my sweet creations and give me her honest opinion…too dense, too sweet, not sweet enough, etc. I love her feedback and trust her palate!! I asked her what type of cupcake she would like for her special day and she requested Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes.
I had made these previously and really liked them, so I was happy when she chose this flavor cupcake. My husband was too!
This little cupcake says so much more than Happy Birthday. It says “you are special” and “I am glad we are friends”.
One last thing…does anyone else out there have a kitchen that looks like this while you are baking or is it just me???
I love making lemon cakes and cookies in the summer, but when I saw a recipe for Lemon Blueberry cake today, I just had to make it! It seems I am baking through Sally’s Baking Addiction Blog/Cookbook lately. I love all the details she gives not only in her actual recipe but in her photos as well. Even an amateur like me can follow along! If I can do it, you can do it!
Find recipe here Lemon Blueberry Cake. This recipe is from Sally’s Baking Addiction. I added a little more lemon and lemon zest to give it a little extra flavor. This recipe will link you to her website as well for her full recipe. Enjoy!
