Bacon and cheddar waffles with homemade syrup

bacon and cheddar waffles

American Father’s Day is coming up. I specify, because when you have family that doesn’t live in America, you realize that you unknowingly miss all sorts of major holidays. Whoops! Anywhoo, what better way to treat your dad than a delicious breakfast of BACON AND CHEDDAR WAFFLES and homemade syrup. It’s the best of all worlds coming together to form the world’s most perfect breakfast world. I like to call it a Ron Swanson, Leslie Knope, Buddy the Elf compromise.

Happy National Donut day!

At some point in the history of blogging, donuts became king. And National Donut Day became its Christmas.

SO, in true blogger form, Happy National Day! May you eat all the frosted, sprinkled, fried dough in the shape of a ring that you can. And if you’re not in the US, may donuts be in your future at some point in life. Or I’ll come to you and bring you some. I’d like that very much.

ME made us some #CraftTheRainbow donuts. Get the full recipe below!

Colorful layered cake recipe

Colorful layered cake

Man, I gave you a little teaser last week of the Balloons & Books baby shower and then I was mum! Well, mum no more, I’m sharing more details about the party and today it’s the colorful cake that Mary Elizabeth Hammond made for our celebration of Victoria and baby Anthem. Layered cakes are nothing new, but I still find them totally charming and shocking—I’ve never actually seen one in person, nor have I ever come close to making even one of those layers, nay, a half of one of those layers. I did burn a cake mix once though, but that’s a story for another day.Baby shower cakeBalloons and books baby showerColorful layered cakecolorful birthday cake

So, I thought it would be fun to make it nondescript from the outside so that it would be a little mullet moment when it was cut open (you know, business in the front, party in the back). Ha! Not true, I just totally forgot to do anything about a cake topper. But I like the excuse so I’m going to stick with it. I should have been a spin doctor.
