Wow, one year… one whole year I have been writing this blog! As I sit here typing, I am swaying in my chair and singing the lyrics to the 1990′s jam, “It’s Our Anniversary” by Tony! Toni! Toné!
However, I am replacing the word anniversary with blogoversary, because I am cool like that! It’s a damn good thing no one can see or hear me because I way waaay off key and the song in this context makes absolutely no sense!

For my blogoversary, I made The Pioneer Woman’s Italian Cream Cake, and let me tell you – this cake is fabulous!

If you follow me on twitter, you may remember my tweet about having a spoonful of this frosting for breakfast yesterday morning. I did omit the walnuts because Brian is allergic. Instead, I topping the cake with toasted coconut, and it is FAB!

For my blogoversary I wanted to put together a giveaway that would be comprised of some of my favorite things.

    My goal for this year is to make all my kids birthday cakes (or cupcakes) I LOVE baking but for some reason when birthdays come around I tend to just buy them a cake……. This year is different, I am going to make them each something EXTRA special!! :)

    The Italian Cream Cake is worthy of an anniversary!!! My goal for the next year is to cook and bake from scratch as much as I can relying on fresh ingredients. I want my time in the kitchen to be inspirational!!
