Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

Hi Everyone! My name is Kathi and I’m completely obsessed with lemons. I thought I’d give you a couple of weeks after posting these lemon bars before hitting you with another lemon dessert. And just when I couldn’t wait any longer, I finally decided to share the cake of my dreams with all of you. Because I happen to be convinced that this is the one thing everyone should serve for their Easter Sunday brunch.

Perfectly lemony, bright and just beyond scrumptious. Everything a good lemon bundt cake should have and so much more.

When I say cake of my dreams, I am nowhere close to exaggerating. This is easily the best bundt cake I’ve ever eaten and quite frankly, I couldn’t keep myself from stopping. Nibbling on just one corner 9of my third slice) quickly turned into devouring the entire piece. And I have absolutely no regrets. NONE. [Read more…]

This is my first actual fall post now that autumn has officially arrived and things are definitely beginning to look like it. The leaves are changing color and I cannot wait to see fall in all its bounty. Though this season tends to be rather short in MN, it sure makes up for it in radiance and breathtaking beauty. Definitely one of the reasons why living here is so worth it.

Also, I feel much more comfortable talking and thinking about all things cozy and warm when we’re in the season. It just feels right.

Fall is definitely approaching. MN mornings are noticeably chillier now with beautifully warm afternoons. Change is in the air and I am finally starting to get used to the idea of cooler weather.

I am actually not dreading the fact that fall is well on its way, but the thought of winter that seems to be approaching quicker ever year, is something I’ve been avoiding. It’s motivated me to come up with a fun list of things to keep myself busy with once I won’t want to set a foot outside.

And you better believe there are quite a few kitchen projects I can’t wait to tackle. When I sat down to write said list, I took a peek at some of my other lists full of ideas I’d collected for the blog and things I wanted to challenge myself with.

When I glanced over the word bagels, it basically jumped off the page. Sunshine, snow or rain, bagels had to happen ASAP. [Read more…]
