Rhubarb Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze

Rhubarb is in season. I’m envious of people with a patch of rhubarb growing in their yards. I have none.

I occasionally can glean some from a family acquaintance or relation. Or, I can buy it at the grocery store. $2.49 a pound! That hurts a little. Especially since my mom used to grow a patch when we were kids and never payed for a stalk of rhubarb in her life probably.

Limeade Cake

Last week was my Grandma’s 86th birthday. (That’s right, Grandma, I just shared your age with the world!) I made her this cake.

She’s a citrus girl. Originally this was going to be lemonade flavor for her but limeade is the what I remember drinking at her house as a kid so it seemed fitting to go with that flavor instead.

Almond Cake

Almond cake doesn’t sound fancy. It’s not really. It’s easy to make with things you may already have on hand in your pantry.

BUT.. it tastes fancy! I made this a few weeks back for my aunt’s birthday. It is dense and chewy and buttery and nutty and fantastic. My own birthday is in a few days and I just may have to make it again for myself. It’s that good. (Except there are so many other things on  my ‘to try’ list. . .choices, choices.)

Orange Cake and a Happy Anniversary to Tim

Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband, Tim!

Two years ago today we had the most enjoyable wedding on the beach in Florida. It was laid back and just right. I’m so very happy to have married my best friend and an all around wonderful man. I love you, sweets.

And as unhappy as she would be with me for sharing this with the world. . . today also would have been my mom’s 60th birthday.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

We lost her 4 and a half years ago. It’s been hard to not have my mom around. Tim and I used her birthday as our wedding date to honor her memory and make her a part of our day. It made me feel better to consider her a part of things for my wedding. I miss her everyday and wish I could be throwing her a huge birthday party for her 60th.

In honor of these two important people in my life, I made mini orange cakes with raspberry filling and orange buttercream.
