We got our first snowfall yesterday, and although where I live it all turned into
rain ice, it was nice to watch while it lasted. These past few days, including yesterday, I did a bit of baking. So, today I bring to you Eggnog Florentines. Continue reading
Today I share with you a wonderful recipe for Clementine Cake. I know, that sounds unusual, but it was pretty easy and unexpected. The cake is really moist and not too overwhelming. And, for those of you who care, it’s gluten free! Honestly that didn’t even occur to me until I was mid-baking, but yay for those of you who are looking for something new that is flourless.

This recipe is for a standard vanilla cupcake with peanut butter frosting. Let’s be real, the point of this recipe is the peanut butter frosting. I highly recommend you put it on any and all of your favorite cakes. It makes everything – even a global pandemic – slightly better while you are eating it. Continue reading
