B52 Layer Cake | Guest Post by Gotta Get Baked on Cravings of a Lunatic

Kahlua, Baileys 'n chocolate: the trifecta of boozy dessert awesomeness. This layer cake is inspired by the flavours of a B52 coffee. It's a labour of love but worth every bite!

I happen to have a very special friend guest posting for me today. Her name is Nancy, and she blogs at gotta get baked. She's freaking hilarious and I adore her to … [Read more...]

Chocolate Coconut Bundt Cake | #BundtaMonth

Chocolate Coconut Bundt Cake by Cravings of a Lunatic

There is nothing I like better than a tropical theme. Well unless you count actually being in the tropics. Since I'm stuck waiting out old man winter here in the cold Canuck climate I was thrilled when they announced the theme this month. I figure if you can't be in the tropics, then pretending to be is a close second. While I'd much rather be eating this cake in Hawaii being served Blue Hawaiians by a gorgeous pool boy, who if I'm lucky looks a lot like Timothy Olyphant, I'll have to … [Read more...]

Hi folks. I am off at Mixed Con this weekend. So I am going to make this post short and sweet. And when I say sweet I mean really sweet. I was inspired to make this Shirley Temple Bundt cake after making Shirley Temples this summer. I grew up having Shirley Temples as a treat when we visited restaurants. We did not go out to eat very often so getting one of those sweet cherry drinks was a supreme treat. … [Read more...]

bundt cake

Hi folks. I am so pleased to be joining the Bundtamonth crew. As many of you know I've been trying to really take a good look at which groups I do and which ones aren't working for me personally, or my family. I made the decision to let go of the ones that don't fit into our meal plans. This left some room for me to experiment with some that do gel with our culinary tastes. I'm trying to be more economical with my time and money. So only doing groups where I have the time to commit and the … [Read more...]

Hi folks. Well today I'm either home and mini-me made it to her first class or we're still driving and she's peeved like crazy right now.

I also might have to seriously consider moving out there. Dang it's gorgeous in Alberta. Horse country, my kind of place. I asked a friend of mine to guest post for me today in … [Read more...]

Black Forest Cheesecake in Memory of my Dad for #SundaySupper #FathersDay

black forest cheesecake

Today is my first post with the Sunday Supper group. I am so thrilled to be participating. I was hesitant to join as I am already doing Ice Cream Sundays and have been for over a year now. But I threw caution to the wind and figure I can either make some Sunday Supper dishes ice cream related or I can post twice on the Sundays I participate. This group is so special it's worth making some sacrifices. The Sunday Supper Movement is an initiative to bring back Sunday Supper Around the Family … [Read more...]
