Texas Sheet Cake

Per the boyfriend’s request, today’s recipe is one of my favorite guilty pleasures, Texas sheet cake. I normally pair it with a big tall glass of milk but today it was salted caramel ice cream. Cheers to another delicious chocolate homemade dessert. This moist cocoa based nutty dessert was baked in a large 12×18 inch…

Easy Strawberry Cake with Lime Buttercream Icing.

Potts family holidays have always had a few guarantees; there will be lots of laughs, loads of love, tons of food, and the rolls will always be burnt. There is nothing that compares to a Potts Family holiday. All are welcome, some come empty handed, others; pans full of treats, but all the same; everyone…

Lemon Bundt Cakes

So, if you know me, you know I love lemon. Probably an inherited trait. Chocolate being a close second. So today I am tucking my tail and giving two recipes; one came out awesome and one I screwed up but still tasted great. Hint: Always butter your bundt! (Butter and flour your pan) 🙂 The…

Dark Chocolate Guinness Cake with Bailey’s Cream Cheese Icing

Getting Naked Cake

As I sit here, on break at the hospital, I think of what I want this blog to entail. My two personal passions in life are nursing and baking. With dreams of traveling the world as a nurse and traveling and learning everything I can about pasties and cakes and everything sweet. This recipe I…
