March is coming in like a Lion that is for sure. Just when I think Spring is coming it snows. Let’s show mother nature we are ready for spring and share our spring recipes. St Patrick Day recipes and Easter recipes are always welcome as they are supposed to symbolize the sign of spring. Which holiday will you be preparing for next, maybe it is just the next dinner or school project. Either way, we want to see how you have been busy crafting and cooking. I know I am starting to prepare ST Patricks Day recipes and thinking about Easter crafts already.
Let me introduce myself, I am Caitlin you know the one who used to do Cooking with Caitlin? Well I am back! I wish I could give you a good excuse but I don’t have one… Well today I don’t have any school and its getting close to St Patricks day so I thought why not do a recipe? I looked on Pinterest and found this yummy looking bundt cake recipe. I will be baking a Lemon Lime Pound Cake Recipe. I have never tried anything like that before. So I decided to do the recipe.
I do not consider myself a dumpster diver, but I was taking the dog for a walk a couple of weeks ago and saw a large gold frame in a friends garbage pile. I immediately called my friend and asked if the frame was in one piece. She said I was welcome to take the frame, now the creativity mice were turning in my brain. What have people repurposed frames into?
Do you have a sweet tooth but want to make good choices for yourself and your family? Maybe you are looking for some Easter candy for your young kids and want to find gluten Free candy products or candy without high fructose corn syrup. Target is now carrying consciously crafted candies by The Lovely Candy Co.
Snow day again here in VA. It was 7o degrees yesterday and I thought it was crazy we were on a winter weather advisory. Well the forecasters were actually accurate this time. The kids are off from school yet again but feeling some what motivated I decided to treat everyone to some simple cinnamon baked Doughnuts from Ina Garten Foolproof cookbook; Since purchasing a donut pan a few months ago I have really enjoyed making baked doughnuts in many flavors.
For my husband’s Birthday he wanted me to replicate a cake he had tasted at a local bakery called the Spotted Cow. I had not experienced the cake with him so I went on the bakery’s website and found the Spotted Cow was a Chocolate Cake recipe with Cream Cheese Frosting. This is a combination I have not tried before so I was definitely intrigued by the challenge. I have made different Chocolate Cake recipes before but always looking for new cake recipes.
