It seems as if I blinked and the time has changed so quickly I can’t even catch my breath. I am so happy to be here again posting. It has been way too long since my last post and so much life has gone by, good and bad. Happiness and sadness. I wish I could have documented it on this blog, but I will pick up here now that life has slowed down a bit and I can catch my breath again.

 I have been meaning to make a cake that my dear friend Hilarie made for me when I had just delivered my second baby Ezra last year. She brought it over just a few days after Ezra had arrived, this cake soothed my soul 🙂 Later I asked her for the recipe and she was so kind to share it with me, so now I will share it with you, if you happen to be baking for a recovering mama this is the cake to bake her, believe me 🙂 Its super moist and super addictive. These pieces in the picture look big but you will understand that after eating your first bite that you will need a bigger slice .


Hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any questions. I am so excited for Thanksgiving to be around the corner and then CHRISTMAS!!!

Praise the Lord He is so so GOOD!
