My favorite cake, no contest!

Just add dark rye bread and you’re good to go! 😉

Bubbies SAUERKRAUT

German Sauerkraut Feast 

One of my fav slow cooker recipes from the Groovy Green Kitchen I.

I make this one a lot. Quick to prepare, hearty and delicious. 

And, it includes: onions, garlic and potatoes: all fav rooties! 🙂

Carrot Cake Revisited ;-)

I MADE THIS CARROT CAKE WITH ICING (AGAIN) YESTERDAY. YUMMY AS USUAL.

THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD TIME TO SHARE IT HERE AGAIN TOO. 😉

I’m not much of a dessert fan but I do love this cake! 

HAPPY BAKING! 🙂

Gotta love WP!!!  

Another quirk I just found out about when posting with WordPress and in this case, reblogging. 

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

I thought with the fall’s garden harvest in full swing, this might be a good time to share this carrot cake“keeper” again.

Yes, it really does taste as good as it looks.

Let me know if you give this cake (and hopefully my icing too) recipe a try. If you and your family like carrot cake, you are going to be loving this one, I’m sure!

As with most recipes, I did a bit of tweaking and in the case of the cake, made half the recipe (measures can be adjusted right on the Allrecipe site, I used 8 servings instead) and made the following easy but rich and creamy icing to finish the cake…

Easter Treats from Me and Mr. Cheddar! :<)

classic ched 9-crop

Mr. Cheddar and I hope you have the best Easter ever!

I think he’s a treat,  just the way he is but the Bunny Ears do add a certain charm, don’t ya think? 😉

My sweet treat is a cake recipe that always brings Spring and Easter to mind.

My fav for the best  Carrot Cake I’ve ever enjoyed and a delish (not to sweet) lemony-cream cheese icing to go with it. If you think the photo looks yummy, wait til you taste it! 😉 Here’s a link to the original post and recipes.

 Happy Easter Weekend!

Craving A Trip to Caketown !!!

                    

Over at Selma In The City there’s a recent post featuring a very cool photo for a shop/cafe named Caketown. Click on through to check it out!

I thought Caketown was such a fun name!

It also got me craving a big piece of carrot cake, one of the only cakes that I now really, really like. I’m not much of a dessert fan for the most part but this cake is a definite exception.

 I’m including the link to my all-time favorite carrot cake recipe (with a not too sweet icing) too and the yummy photo below:

Try setting this one as your screensaver or desktop background. Definite yummm…factor but do not attempt to access with a fork! LOL 

What is your favorite cake? If you have a link to the recipe, please include it too.

Cakes can be such works of art as well.

My mom, Helen was a superb baker but strangely she did not like (or excel at) cooking, go figure.

 I still remember her many prize-winning exhibition / fall fair cakes and she was up against some very stiff competition and dozens and dozens of other entries most years. 

And those amazing birthday cakes that she also created year after year, that were ooohhhed and ahhhhed about by my little pals in those days. My wonderful teachers too. We invited our teachers to birthday parties back then in the early grades. I wonder if parents with young children still do that? It was a great honor/thrill for me!

Happy Baking and Weekend too. 🙂
