Spice Cake with Coconut Frosting

delicious spice cake with coconut frosting

Spice Cake with coconut frosting and chopped walnuts is a dessert you need to make this fall. This spice cake is easy to make and the batter smells heavenly. Our weather has been so lovely and fall like that I couldn't resist doing some fall baking. I don't really recall any September being this fall like this early nor do I recall any days in August being as nice and cool as they were so it's been a nice treat having a break from the humidity. Enough about the weather. This cake "frosting" is not your typical frosting. The recipe calls for butter, brown sugar, coconut and milk until thick … I'm not finished reading yet...

How I took my own newborn lifestyle photos

lifestyle photography

When I first started this blog a few years ago I knew I wanted to talk about photography because it's such a passion of mine. I know this is not what you're use to reading here but maybe you will find it useful anyways. I love lifestyle photography and also love taking pictures of my family. While pregnant with Grayson, I had planned on taking his newborn pictures after he was born. However, after 5 weeks in the NICU our sweet boy wasn't that squishy, easy to pose infant any more. He also had terrible acid reflux which meant he wanted to be in our arms all the time. So my plans for pictures … I'm not finished reading yet...

This & That

We had a lunch date with Jason today at one of my favorite places in Louisville. It's called Joella's Hot Chicken. So good! I've been a little MIA so far this month..the 4th of July has thrown me off since we went back to Illinois for that weekend but came back home on the 4th so I haven't gotten caught up on much since then.  I need a new show to watch. We still need to watch House of … I'm not finished reading yet...

Coconut Pie

delicious coconut pie

Coconut Pie-homemade pie crust, homemade custard and a layer of whipped topping garnished with toasted coconut. I don't know if it's a gettin' older thing but I kind of love coconut desserts. I'd say this started a couple of years ago. I was in a whole foods type of grocery and they had these self serve bins of candy and the price is based on weight. In these bins were squares of chocolate … I'm not finished reading yet...

This & That

My sister in law snapped a few photos of us back at Easter. It's taken me this long to edit and share any of them....there's just not enough hours in the day.  Grayson and I spent a few days in Illinois this week.

S'mores Cups-all your favorite s'mores ingredients but in bite size pieces and without the camp fire.  I'm sure I've made it known before, but I love s'mores. If there is s'mores dessert around I am going for that before anything else.  S'mores Cups was something I made for a few get togethers a really long time ago. Like, when Jason and I had only been married a year or two.We … I'm not finished reading yet...

butterfly on flower

The butterfly exhibit at the zoo is really cool! You can't take strollers through and since I had to carry Grayson he wanted to grab the woman's backpack in front of us and play with the zipper and then all the flowers and the butterflies he wanted to grab. Which is a big NO, NO! It was still fun to walk through though though.  The new season of House of Cards is available on Netflix. We … I'm not finished reading yet...
