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

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

Almost Homemade-Fruit Pizza!

I had a Relief Society activity last week and we served fruit pizza.  They were so yummy and they looked so beautiful!  There were extra cookies and frosting…so I volunteered to take the plain cookies home.  (I know…that was nice of me…right, hey, everyone else took the fruit cookies home!)  I froze the cookies and the frosting and saved them for our Sunday dinner!fruit pizzas Continue reading

Frosted Marshmallow Brownies

I hope that everyone had a great Mother’s Day weekend!  We had rain ALL day on Saturday,  (which we need, so it was great!) it was a perfect day to stay inside and work on some of my sewing projects!  Then the sun came out on Sunday and it was a beautiful day!

I hope that you all got to enjoy your weekend and spend some time with those that you love!

I used to make these brownies a lot when my kids were younger and I have not made them for years now…but I thought that they would be a great treat for my “Sugar Sunday”. (I am trying to only eat sugar one day a week and it is on Sunday, so my friend and I have started calling it “Sugar Sunday!)frosted marshmallow brownies
