Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen


The Naked Cake

The Naked Cake is one of the hottest wedding cake trends of the season. You may ask, what is a Naked Cake? It’s a cake without frosting on the sides. This cake is incredibly stylish and chic and you’re about to see why. I’ve rounded up 10 Naked Cakes that prove you don’t need a pound of buttercream for your cake to make a statement.

Let’s start off with the basics, shall we? For beginning bakers (or a quick refresher course!), check out this helpful how-to video that  Crate&Barrel put together.

Friday Finds 6.6

Happy Friday! Today’s round-up is inspired by my weekend plans. I’m heading home to celebrate my grandparents’ sixtieth wedding anniversary! That’s right, 6-0. My love for food and good recipes really began with my family’s trips to Grandma Daisy and Grandpa Lenny’s house. My grandma is an incredible cook and my grandpa is an incredible taste-tester.

Every time my sisters and I slept over at Grandma’s she always made a delicious breakfast. In honor of National Donut Day, I thought I’d share these yummy Chocolate Glazed Baked Donuts recipe from Roxana’s Home Baking. They’re soft, fluffy and cake-like! Can’t beat it!

My Grandma is always trying new side dishes and because of my Grandpa’s diabetes she’s looking for healthier alternatives.  They’d both love Lil’ Luna‘s Parmesan Crusted Zucchini!

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this on the blog before, but I am a HUGE grilled cheese fan. Majorly. And my Grandma knows that, so every time I go over she’s giving me recipe clips for new grilled cheese recipes. This time I get to send her a new recipe with Foodie Crush‘s Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese!

Grandma and Grandpa’s house is always the gathering place when the whole family is in town. One of our Christmas traditions is to eat ham sandwiches while we’re unwrapping presents on Christmas night. I’m thinking this delicious Slow Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches recipe could become a new tradition! Thanks Taste and Tell for the idea!

And I can’t forget about all of her incredible cookie recipes and this adorable heart-shaped Linzer Cookies from Cooking Classy seem perfectly fitting for the occasion.

Happy Anniversary Grandma and Grandpa!
