Italian Cream Cake

April 20, 2015

italian-cream-cake-1

The other day I tried my hand at an Italian Cream Cake. For those of you who have no idea what an Italian Cream Cake is, not to worry I’ll explain…it’s a white cake that originates from the South that is flavoured with coconut and pecan nuts and covered in cream cheese icing. I know what you’re going to say, where does the Italian and cream fit into it? Well the cream is in the batter and as for the Italian, I’m as confused as you are on that one…

Before I stumbled across this recipe, I had also never heard of or tasted an Italian Cream Cake, but now I’m so glad that I’m no longer a stranger to this fluffy coconut-ty cake of loveliness.

sandwich cookies with salted caramel creme filling

I’ve been trying out different cookie recipes in the hopes that I will come across a nice one that we can use to make ice-cream sandwiches for Father. This is recipe no.3 that I have just tried out and not only was it a nice, quick and easy one to follow, but these suckers came out pretty delicious. They’re a little soft and chewy and the ones that I baked for a minute less worked quite nicely with an ice-cream filling because they remained a bit soft.

The other night I tried out Lindsay’s recipe for San Marzano pasta E Fagioli. I’ve never cooked pasta in a sauce before, so I was a bit intrigued and a bit worried, because there was a lot of sauce in my pot at one stage and I didn’t know if it was going to boil down enough, but it did and this dish turned out pretty good. I made a couple of changes to the original recipe just because I didn’t use spicy chicken sausage like she suggested. I added some chorizo and a bit of chilli, which worked out pretty well, I also added some sugar because there is a lot of tomato that goes into this.

The Kitchy Kitchen

July 11, 2013

I stumbled across this food blog The Kitchy Kitchen a few days ago via Pinterest. Last night I literally lay in bed talking to myself about all these recipes. I was a like a crazy person high on imaginary sugar. It definitely looks likes this lady knows how to wield her kitchen equipment and take a pretty picture of the end result.

Here are some of the things that caught my fat eye, I’d say check out her site for more, it’s totally worth it.

Happy birthday to my best friend and hooray for Oreo cupcakes.

On Monday night I threw my Shane a small surprise Rumdayillovo party. It’s his birthday today which means it’s pretty much impossible for us to go out because of Howl, so with Doug’s help I made prego rolls and potato wedges, hung up balloons with steamers, set-up a poker game and had our Rumday Illovo family over to surprise him. He was ALMOST surprised. Boo. He arrived home literally 10 minutes before everyone else arrived to shout the big ‘S’ word, but he appreciated it anyway.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SHANE, you are my best friend and I love you so so so much.
