Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

Lemon! One simple word, and your mouth begins to anticipate a flavor explosion! I love all things lemon! The zing of tartness, the smell of fresh grated lemon zest, and the plump bright beautiful yellows! Sigh…I always have and… I expect that I always will. Unless something drastic happens like a tastebudectomy!?? YIKES! (Yes! I know that isn’t a real word! It’s the beginning of the week. I’m being creative!) I have a feeling it is universal! This love of lemon. There are only 4.5 million flavors of lemonade, (o.k. maybe a slight exaggeration!), so I think I’m standing on some solid “lemony” ground here!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cupcakes

Cupcakes! (Que the heavenly music) Or, as I like to refer to them, Little Carb Cups of Joy! They make me… SO happy! I love, love, love to make cupcakes! ( Did I mention I love to make cupcakes?) Anywho… last week I signed up to make a bake good for a bake sale some girls at our church were having. I knew right away I would make cupcakes. It makes perfect sense if you think about it. You make a cake and you have to turn over all the “goods!”. It’d look kind of silly to hand over a cake with a couple of slices missing! (Not that I wouldn’t! Which is really pathetic when you think about it!) You make cupcakes…well…you can keep a few out for yourself! Which I did! I mean for crying out loud you HAVE to taste test the goods you are donating! It’s the considerate thing to do!

Traditional Strawberry Shortcake!

In my family growing up, strawberry shortcake was not a dessert! Say What?! You read that right! Grandpa Howard insisted that strawberry shortcake was, in fact, the main course! (There’s a man after my own heart!) So, if you happened to come on a night strawberry shortcake was being served, you best not be looking for chicken and potatoes, because there was none to be had!
