Vanilla-Buttermilk Cake

Happy Friday Everyone!  Are you all ready for another weekend?!!

Today I have a super delicious cake that is made from scratch, so you know it is going to be good!  It is moist and oh so wonderful!

I made this cake for my husband’s birthday a while back and I gave him the choice of what cake to make.  Of course he picked the basic vanilla cake with not a whole lot of anything else in it!  But, guess what?…It was delicious!vanilla-buttermilk cake

Cute Scarecrow Cupcakes

I have to admit that today’s post is a bit of a fail!  I wanted to make some Cute Scarecrow Cupcakes and they did not not turn out as cute as I had hoped they would!  Does anyone else out there have cooking fails from time to time?  These turned out okay…and they taste great…they just aren’t as cute as the ones I was trying to copy!scarecrow cupcakes Continue reading

Lemonade Cupcakes

Some of you have been asking about the 40 day conference reading challenge…I will posting the bookmark next week and the actual challenge will begin on the 17th of August and end the Sunday before October Conference!  It seems crazy to think that we are that close to another conference!  Are you ready for the challenge???  Get your friends, family and neighbors, your VT sisters and any others you can to join you in the challenge…it is always more fun when you have someone to do it with you!

I feel like summer is starting to wind down a little bit.  It is not quite so hot here in Utah and the evenings are actually starting to cool down a bit.  But the calendar still says it summer and it is warm during the days, so we still need some refreshing desserts, right??   I still have lemons on my mind because we just had a Relief Society activity and it was about making lemonade from lemons.  I volunteered to take a lemon dessert and I came up with these fun Lemonade Cupcakes!lemonade cupcakes Continue reading

Sugar Cookie Lemon Tarts

I mentioned when I did the Visiting Teaching handout that I had lemons on the brain, so today I thought I would share this fun dessert that I made last week…Sugar Cookie Lemon Tarts!  It doesn’t get a whole lot better than sugar cookie tarts filled with a lemon filling and topped with whipped cream!  I have a couple of other recipes that I want to try out this next week…there is just something about lemons that are so refreshing in the hot summer months!  I love the tartness of lemons along with a bit of sweet, it is just very refreshing!sugar cookie lemon tarts Continue reading
