Orange Cake with Blueberry Filling and Orange Cream Cheese Frosting (By C)

you won't regret seconds

 

One of the best birthday cakes I’ve ever made – and hopefully the best birthday cake my boyfriend has ever eaten.  Since this cake was a surprise, I couldn’t even assign J paltry kitchen tasks like I usually do.  He was booted unceremoniously from the kitchen, in fact.

This cake was relatively simple and really tasty! The concentrated orange juice really gives the orange flavour that extra kick 🙂

Margarita-ronas

Out to dinner at a local texmex joint a few weeks ago, the waitress suggested we try the new drink on their menu. I figured it couldn’t be bad, so we ordered a round. Realizing these were the best things ever, we had another round. It was a great night. I then realized I needed to try to make it at home. Wondering what it is yet?

Tired of cereal every day? Tired of going out to Cora’s for a half decent eggs benny and having your eggs over cooked?

If you answered yes to the above questions, it’s time to break out your whisk and make your own eggs benny!

A Tase of Italy – Double Chocolate Tiramisu (by C)

Delicious Tiramisu

A Taste of Italy!

Alright, this is one we will consider a baked good, or dessert, so I definitely did not make it. C thinks I bake like a jackass, so I usually just get relegated to fetching ingredients. I’m totally cool with that because she is lots of fun to watch baking – and the end result is amazing!

So, here we go – chocolate infused lady fingers in coffee liqueur and a creamy filling makes this AMAZING!
