I'm having fun decorating the pages along the way, as I find extra time.
The Butter Pecan Ice Cream recipe and the Lemon Brownies also made it in my Smash Book. This way I can still have a few hand written recipes. I used the Green Smash Book---"Tasty" to journal a few of my favorite recipes. I let the pages guide me to what recipes will fit on the pages. For example; when I saw the lemon page---I knew the Lemon Brownies would be perfect.
I used my label maker to personalize my Simple Stories binder. I love that thing!
So far I'm loving this and I've even wanted to cook a little more.
We polished it completely off, kinda embarrassing but true.
You'll have to forgive me for not photographing the upside down portion of the cake. We had to leave in a hurry and I thought I would wait to flip the cake onto a plate when we got home.
Needless to say, it didn't flip---it got stuck.
I'm pretty sure if I would have flipped it before it cooled completely, I would have had much better luck.
It still tasted out of this world. I highly recommend it :) Just goes to show you--looks aren't everything. This cake has personality!
Peach Upside Down Cake
1/4 cup butter, melted 1/2 cup brown sugar 2 cups fresh sliced peaches or 1 quart jar 1/2 cup butter, softened 3/4 cup white sugar 1 egg 1 1/4 cups flour 1/4 tsp. salt 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 cup milk
Place 1/4 cup melted butter in baking dish. I used a 9 inch round baking stone. Sprinkle brown sugar on top. Place drained peaches in single layer on top of brown sugar.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup softened butter and white sugar. Beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla.
Gradually add flour mixture, alternating with milk. Mix until just combined.
Spoon over peaches.
Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until toothpick test comes out clean.
Let cool for 10 minutes and invert on cake plate.
Serve warm with whipped topping or vanilla ice cream. Or both!
Boy was it hard to go back to work on Monday. We had such a fun amazing week!
Last week was my birthday, so we did a lot of celebrating. We went to Applebee's for dinner and then home for cake and ice cream. I LOVE strawberry filled cake with whipped topping. Dan always finds me the perfect cake.
We hung out with my mom and sisters on Friday. My sister treated us all to shakes at Arctic Circle. Jake loves his Aunties.
On Saturday night, we ate at Rumbi after church and then headed to a college basketball game. Weber State Wild Cats---we WON! Weber State Weber State---Great Great Great. ( I can't get this cheer out of my head). I always forget how much fun it is to go to these games. Our credit union was giving out free tickets. We got there early and scored free t-shirts. Jake of course had waaaaay too much popcorn.
Sunday, Aaron and Jess came over. Dan made his famous chicken dinner and I whipped up a really time consuming batch of Rice Krispy Treats.....ha!
At the end of each month, I look through all of my photos and make a quick Project Life layout with the app. It just gives me an idea what photos I need to print for the month and helps me along the way.
