Lemon Raspberry No Bake Cheesecake Bites – creamy bites with fresh raspberries and a hint of lemon, rolled in graham cracker crumbs. Perfect summer treat for the cheesecake lovers!
We are quickly approaching that time of year when it’s just too hot to turn the oven on. That makes me sad because I love to bake! I love the smell of freshly baked bread or cake in the house! I am also a huge fan of cheesecake. In any form. Plain or with toppings. I will take them all!
One Monday, during my daughter’s ballet class, I was flipping through the pages of Rachel Ray’s magazine. I do not remember what month it was from, I just remember seeing this recipe for cheesecake bites. I quickly wrote down the recipe and.. forgot about it. Things got busy with the recital and our son’s birthday. But I found it the other day, got some raspberries and finally made these babies.
Lemon Strawberry Layer Cake – this rustic looking cake is very easy to make and absolutely delicious! You will love the lemon and strawberry combo! Also, enter our giveaway to win fabulous prizes from OXO and Driscoll’s!!
I am about to tell you that making a layer cake is ridiculously easy. Not only you cannot mess it up but you also don’t need any skills or experience in decorating cakes.
Rustic cakes are the new thing! They are impressive to serve for a dinner party or any celebration. And we all know that summer is full of celebrations. Any reason is good for a party during summer. The sunshine, the warm breeze, the chirping birds – it all makes you want to throw a party!
Summer is also all about fruit. The best way to eat it? Fresh of course! When there is a fruit juice dripping down your hands – you know you are enjoying the fruit in the best way possible.
Glazed Lemon Muffins – fluffy muffins with fresh notes of citrus!
Recently, I realized that I complain too much. Be it weather (cold, wind), lighting (never enough for my photos), time (never enough to get everything done), social media (Facebook doesn’t like me), failed recipes (these really drive me crazy), running out of my favorite chocolate (oh the horror!), my hair (I am on a constant journey to tame them and like them) and so many others.
Creamy Lemon Crumb Bars – one of the easiest and fun bars with a perfect citrus flavor!
I had only 20 seconds to photograph these bars. And that’s not because of my kiddos who usually want to steal the treats I shoot. It was me. I wanted to devour the whole pan of this version of my favorite bars. Creamy lemon, aka my new weakness.
I suggest you pull out the eggs and butter and let them sit on your counter because by the time you are done reading this post (yes, I am assuming you actually read my posts ) you will need your ingredients at room temperature to make this cake. Because you will want to make this cake. I am telling you right now. It is that good!
And then make sure you remember to make it for Easter. With it’s fresh lemony flavor and gorgeous appearance it is sure to be a star on your holiday table.
As you can see, I decided to bake my way through Winter. No day goes by without my mixing bowls in use. That’s how I deal with this gray and cold season. But in just two weeks (!!!) it will officially be Spring! And I’m trying to get ready for it. The only thing I actually like about Winter is the citrus fruit. Abundance of it everywhere.
I spotted lemons on sale and couldn’t help myself. I had plans for them, you see. Like these Lemon Burst Cookies.
