Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake

The batter for this cake is thick….really thick, but that’s what enables the fruit to stay wonderfully suspended throughout the entire cake, and not sink to the bottom (make that the top) of the cake, when the cake is inverted.

In almost each and every forkful you take of this Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake you’ll have a plump piece of strawberry or rhubarb, which is a very, very good thing!

Homemade Marzipan Candy Carrots

Making marzipan has been on my list of things I’ve wanted to make for years and years. Why it took me so long to make it, I’ll never know.

But what I do know is now that I finally have, I’m excited to have the block of homemade marzipan wrapped and stored in my fridge to mold, sculpt, and play with whenever the whim strikes.

Perfect Profiteroles with Orange Curd Whipped Cream Filling

If you’ve been intimidated about making homemade profiteroles before (aka Eclairs), I’m here today to take away some of your fears and show you just how easy they are to make.Plus you won’t need any special kitchen equipment.

A saucepan and wooden spoon are basically all you’ll need. However, if you do have a stand mixer, you’ll save your arm muscles a pretty intense workout.

Homemade Beignets for Mardi Gras

Have you ever been to New Orleans? I have not, but it’s on my bucket list of places I want to visit. I hear the food is amazing, the people are fun, and the culture needs to be experienced at least once. 

But, until I get there in person making homemade beignets for Mardi Gras is a good way to get the party started!
