TRES LECHES CHOCOLATE CAKE
When your friend turns 50 you go homemade. Big thanks to Erica Dinho, creator behind My Colombian Recipes for developing this amazing recipe. I baked this cake for a dear friends 50th birthday celebration. Lina is from Colombia herself and I wanted to make something extra special. I went to Cartagena myself a few yeas ago and enjoyed some tres leches cake — but this was something else.
I learned: I will never bake a cake from a box again. Everyone should add one, two or tres (!) leches to their cake. I will only use homemade icing made in my kitchen moving forward.
This cake takes time, love and patience! But it's well worth it. Truly delicious and special.
This colorful, zesty salad is inspired by Half Baked Harvest! I follow Tieghan on IG and have only made a few of her recipes, but this one was a hit that I plan on making throughout the summer. The dressing is one to save, if nothing else! If you know me, you know I don't like buying packaged items — or at least, I prefer to make food fresh from home, especially dressings, sauces and most recently, cake.
Grab your fresh herbs, peaches, tomatoes and cherries...
Golden Honey Corn Bread
Crispy edges, sweet honey and a comforting texture that only comes from homemade cornbread. I loved making this and plan on making it often this summer. Next time, I want to add fresh corn (let's wait 'til August for prime season!).
We have to eat everyday, don't we?
