kebabs, linzers and chiffon

This was a surprising good meal, Chicken Kebabs with Cucumber Noodles. Jude loves raw carrots and cucumbers and I love any kind of peanut sauce so everyone was happy. I’m adding it to my meal planning food list.

For VDay, Jude and I spent some time making cookies. And really, when Smitten Kitchen posted the recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Linzer Heart Cookies, I knew they were the ones to make. So stinking good.

Really, everything is better with Nutella.

And finally, I can’t believe I haven’t posted the recipe for this cake before. It is probably the best, non-chocolate cake I have ever made. This Mixed Berry Chiffon Cake with Almond Cream Cheese Frosting is a show stopper. And the perfect birthday cake. 🙂 It’s pretty time consuming to make, but I made the cake a week ahead of time and froze it (cakes always taste better after they have been frozen) and made the filling and frosting the day before. Delicious.

Sharpie Mug

I’ve seen this idea floating around pinterest for awhile and it seemed to good to be true: sharpie, white mug, customize and bake in the oven for permanent results. Turns out, a regular sharpie IS a little too good to be true. But there were alternatives… I  bought some oil based sharpies (more like a paint pen) and it worked beautifully! I wrote a message on the front and turned Jude loose to draw on the back.  Turned out pretty cute! Bought some yummy gourmet coffee to complete the gift and my mom was a happy lady!

Happy birthday Mom!

One year. One WHOLE year.

I don’t even know how to begin to express how crazy it is that my little man is a year old today. One whole stinkin’ year. It’s crazy to think that a year ago today I had just gone through labor. Unreal. He’s growing up so fast on me.

Just a glimpse of our last year:

This little one has changed me so much and just revealed so much of what life is truly about. He has made my life more difficult but added so much more value. It’s just amazing how much children can reveal of our shortcomings. I can honestly say that this little boy will grow me into a better person. And I’m looking forward to the journey.

Today we will be taking Jude out for his one year photoshoot, so I will hopefully be sharing some pictures of that fun with you guys later on.

Happy First Birthday my little man. I love you so much and can’t wait to see what the rest of our years together bring!

double chocolate layer cake

So cake number two HAD to be chocolate! I made the variation with the rasberry filling and it was delicious. And the leftovers got better each day.

The road to delicious was a little rocky though. First of all I learned never to use all of the batter in pans that are too small. The recipe calls for 10″ pans; I had 9″. This resulted in an overflow to the bottom of my oven. Bummer. The cake still turned out fine. Following some of Smitten Kitchen’s cake tips, I froze the two layers before I sliced them in half. This made slicing the layers nearly impossible. Next time I’ll cool, slice and THEN freeze.

Turns out ganache covered all of my cake sins but I ended up needing the whole batch of ganache instead of the half called for if you make rasberry filling.

I learned a lot from this cake experience and I’ll be trying again soon! Hopefully the next one will go a little smoother…
