Summer is definitely here, and it is HOT. We went swimming in the creek to cool off. It was beautiful, and the only thing that was missing was the fresh-squeezed lemonade.
I made this cheesecake for the busy moms out there. The moms that don’t have time to mess with stuff, but still want a nice dessert to give them 5 more minutes of face time with their kids after dinner.
I discovered not too long ago that people either love or loathe carrot cake, which I find surprising since carrot is one of the few cakes that I actually enjoy. Having said that, I ordered a slice of carrot cake from a bakery once and I learned that day how painful and cruel life can sometimes be because I bit into it and found a raisin.
I hate everything about winter, so I’ll take any warm and sunny day that comes along. I’ll take it, I’ll smile, and I’ll probably purchase some lemons.
My grandma always said if she was God, she would make raspberries the size of her palm. I kind of like them the way they are; I love that little bite-size burst of flavor.
I knew in that moment I would need to learn to make homemade cream sodas. And learn, I did.
