Sima (Finnish Lemonade) #eattheworld


It’s time for #EatTheWorld and we’re heading to Finland! 



As I searched for recipes, I found many delicious, hearty dishes that just seemed a bit too wintery for July, or too similar to other things I’d made before, so I kept searching. Eventually, I came across a recipe for Sima, a slightly fermented lemonade-like drink that is enjoyed in Finland during the annual Vappu celebration.

Baby Groot Cupcakes



I kind of got out of the habit of sharing my cake creations.

I was doing well for awhile, then it got to be too much for one blog, so I started a second.  I kept it up for awhile, but now I haven’t updated that one in ages (sad!)  So I thought, why not get back in the habit of sharing cakes over here every once in a while.

Half Corn-Half Flour Tortillas



The other day, the kids were watching Despicable Me 2 again.  So the tortilla chip hats got brought up again.  Only this time, Pikachu needed a tortilla chip hat (as per Spud’s request).

Dirt Cake Cups



One of my favorite desserts when I was growing up was dirt cake. 

And if I could convince my mom to make it for my birthday, it was the best ever!

It’s been years since I had dirt cake, so I decided to make a batch and place it in individual cups for Spud’s end of the school year celebration!

Rainbow Sprinkle Cinnamon Rolls



A few weeks ago, I was scrolling Facebook and saw a Tasty video for Rainbow Sprinkle Cinnamon Rolls.  I was horrified and intrigued at the same time.  Cake mix and sprinkles in cinnamon rolls?!?  What?!?

I knew I had to try them.  I decided to make a batch and send them to work with Hubs since I really didn’t have an occasion for making a whole batch of cinnamon rolls for just my family (we taste tested one first, of course).

Cream Cheese Swirl Banana Bread



have a problem. 

It’s a banana problem.

I got to the grocery store, and the bananas look so good!  I will eat these as a healthy snack, I promise myself.

I buy a few, take them home, and park them on the counter.  Then 5.2 seconds later, they’re too spotty and brown, so I don’t eat them and I toss them in the freezer “for later” and forget about them.

Tragic.

So came a time (again) with an abundance of bananas in the freezer and half a block of cream cheese that needed to be used up, so I figured it was time to try out a new banana bread recipe!

Sourdough Avocado Toast



It’s Fantastical Food Fight time again and this month it’s a sourdough throw down!

I made my very first sourdough last summer and it was amazing, so I was super excited to give it another shot and try for a bit more carving!



I used the exact same recipe from the Kitchn’ because there’s just no messing with perfection (well, at least at this point when I’m still getting used to sourdough – I’m sure there will come a time when I start tinkering).
