Whew. How did it get to be Monday already and how in the world are we in the middle of April? Is it just me or have the last couple of weeks been flying by?

Like I mentioned on Friday, we attended a family get-together for Easter this past weekend and somehow started planning our summer. Lots of fun activities and mini vacations are in the work – it’s bound to be an eventful summer this year! I’ve already grilled dinner almost every night last week and had my first frozen yoghurt with a dear friend on Saturday. To say I’m excited about everything this warm weather has to offer would be an understatement.

Let’s not mention that it began to snow as we were headed home last night. I am choosing to ignore the temporary dip in temperature at this point. Warm weather HAS to be inevitable!

Carrot Cake – yay or nay? It’s been a long debate in our house.

Before I married Adam, I always thought carrots were a vegetable that everyone loved. You know, sort of like corn, peas, broccoli or green beans. Vegetables that are mild in flavor and make a frequent appearance on dinner tables around the country.

Since I love eating most vegetables, it never occurred to me that I could be sharing my life with someone who isn’t a huge fan. Over the years, I have had to get creative with sneaking in vegetables or simply not mentioning that my sweetie was chowing down on turnips and not regular potatoes :).

A method that has served us well so far. Except when it comes to carrots. Apparently carrots have such a strong taste that they can ruin an entire meal. Who knew?

So when I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, that I’d been really wanting to try to bake a carrot cake, you can probably imagine the look I received. There was no convincing that a dessert could include vegetables, much less carrots.

But with Easter getting closer and closer, I could finally stand it no longer and set out to create a carrot cake that would please a self-proclaimed vegetable-avoider. [Read more…]

Samoa Mug Cake

Samoa Mug Cake by Deliciously Yum!

So I finally jumped on the girl scout cookie train. I have certainly not missed the fact that the cutest little girls are out and about selling their well-loved cookies. Until two days ago, I had successfully avoided the purchase of said cookies. Not because I don’t support the girl scouts, but mainly because I know what serious damage we’ll inflict on those cookies once they enter our home.

With the temperatures climbing to a balmy 45 degrees on Monday, little girls were stationed at pretty much every grocery store entrance. There was no escaping, lol. Needless to say, I proceeded to purchase our favorite variety from one of our friends’ daughter. Most people are either on the Thin Mint or Samoa side. I even heard people say that you can’t be on both. That it’s impossible. I beg to differ. I refuse to choose between one or the other. But since I recently figured out how to make Homemade Thin Mints, I went for Samoas. And inspiration struck. I am this excited to share this recipe for Samoa Mug Cake with you today! [Read more…]
