Lemon Crumb Cake – Olive Garden Copycat

Lemon Crumb Cake

So yesterday was my amazing mother’s birthday! She turned 25 for like the 17th time….so younger than me, but that’s cool, I’ll turn that again one day 😉 Anyways, she asked me to make her a cake, obviously being the baker I am I happily obliged. So I asked her what she was craving, and lemon being one of her favorite flavors she told me that. Well I don’t know about you guy’s but this Lemon Crumb Cake from Olive Garden has been one of my favorite lemon desserts for the longest time. It is so light with just the perfect amount of lemon flavor AND those crumbs!! Yum, so I knew that this was the cake that I was going to make her.  Read more

Coconut Tres Leches Cake

Tres Leche Cake2

I have a case of the Monday’s. I woke up out of a dead sleep this morning with definitely not enough sleep. I’m one of those types of people who don’t require an alarm clock to get up at the time that they need. Which mine is around 7:00-7:15 every morning to get the kids up and ready for school. Usually I wake up gracefully and slowly and am able to acclimate to the time, not this morning. It was like my body knew that I was going to be late because I was so tired that it woke up in a panic at 7:09 and didn’t know what to do. So needless to say I’m having a slow going morning that calls for a delicious slice of this Coconut Tres Leches Cake. Read more

Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake

Happy Day after Valentines Day! Also known as, better stock up on all the clearance candy ASAP Day! I hope you all had an amazing love filled day. I had a horrible day. What I have avoided doing my whole entire existence happened. Now I’m going to admit, I’m one of those gals who likes to browse Pinterest or the news on their phone while taking a nice long bubble bath. My husband ALWAYS told me that I would drop that thing in there one day while I was browsing. Do you think that happened to me yesterday? Nope, not exactly! Although my phone DID take a nice bath, it was because it fell out of my pocket while I was draining the bath for my daughter. WHAT ARE THE CHANCES!!! Come on now! So in light of my awful, dead phone, unhappy candy day I just wanna sit here and bask in the glory that is this Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookie Cake. Read more
