 Quote of the day:

There is no sincerer love than the love of food. 
George Bernard Shaw 


I am totally into baking lately. I have always loved to bake but it’s like the baking bug bit me. Over the Christmas break Ashy and lil one loved every second of it. I just kept bringing them food then desserts then food then desserts, haha. I am excited to share this recipe with you because I sorta made it up as I went. I’m not saying there is no other Strawberry Gingerbread out there but for me I added as I went along. I was just supposed to bake plain gingerbread using the Betty Crocker mix and while I was in the kitchen I started making a salad then before you knew it the strawberries that were in my salad flew into my gingerbread mix! HAHA

Seriously. They just flew in there like they knew that was where they needed to be.

Boy did it come out good! Let’s make it.


*Betty Crocker Gingerbread Mix

*1 cup of diced strawberries

Start by following the directions on the back of the gingerbread box then throw in your berries. Mix it good then throw it in the oven. Well not really “throw” but pop um in there.   When it is done baking let it cool off good. I mixed powdered sugar with a little bit of water to make my topping. To do this the ratio is 2 to 1. I put two scoops of sugar and one of water ,you might have to add a little bit more water depending on how your consistency is. I melted a little bit, drizzled it on top of my gingerbread then topped it with fresh strawberries.


When you eat it warm you can taste all of the fresh baked strawberries inside and it’s so good. If you don’t want the sugar drizzle on top you can replace with whipped cream.

I hope you enjoyed this SUPER SIMPLE recipe. Make sure you come back tomorrow for my favorite featured pics on Valentine’s day crafts. You never know you might be featured.

Martha’s Devil’s food CAKE and Betty Crocker Review!

Hey friends! It’s finally Saturday and I am so happy that I got to sleep in. Even though “sleeping in” only consists of sleeping till 7:30 {{{teeheheee}}}.

I woke up super early (kinda cussed at the universe for doing that for a quick second)… then felt all weird about doing that then thanked the UNIVERSE for letting me get all sleepy again. In case you didn’t hear me, “THANK YOU UNIVERSE”… 

Now I am up and wanted to post this lovely cake before my lovely day starts!!!

I found this recipe and thought it would go great with this new product I had to test out!

 Let’g get rolling since we are under a TORNADO watch and my electricity might go out in any second!!!

I am using Martha’s Moist Devil’s Food Cake, you can find it here!!!!

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for pans
3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder, plus more for pans
1/2 cup boiling water
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups sifted cake flour (not self-rising)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

click HERE to get the directions. 

I mixed all of my ingredients together as just like Martha did!!! (hehe) I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, check them out HERE.

I got this Betty Crocker gel mix to try and I finally used it! If you want some you can get it from Wal-Mart or you can order it HERE.

You want to squeeze the entire tube into you batter BEFORE you bake it! (epic fail if you don’t)

After you bake your cake let it cool and frost with whatever icing you like. I frosted the whole cake with whip cream and put it in the freezer. SOOO GOOD!!!

I cut up some walnuts and andes mints for my topping!

OH! Here is one of my plants I got for Valentines Day! Figured I would share with you since it is so delicate and pretty!

Serve with ice cream, I used BLUE BELL MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP. Are you drooling yet?

Yes friends, this is what my plate looked like AFTER this tornado got to it, hehe.

I hope you enjoyed this yummy tutorial and you HAVE to try this mint gel flavoring! SO GOOD!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and be safe if you are celebrating Mardi Gras!!!
