Cinnamon Churros with Chocolate Dulce de Leche

I got this recipe from the blog Love & Olive Oil. The link for the recipe post is here, if you would like to check it out.

When I saw the post, I just had to try it, as I love churros!!

Birthday Cake

My dad's birthday was on Thursday, so I decided to make a simple white cake, the recipe for which I got on

My dad doesn't really care for chocolate, so it was a given to make a white cake. He also doesn't like frosting/icing on cake (which I think is crazy!), so I left the cake unfrosted.

But, I did make frosting, and kept it in a medium bowl, for those of us who do like frosting.

Here are a few photos of the cake.

Ready to bake

Finished baking, and cooling down

Chocolate Cupcakes and Cookie Dough

A couple days ago, I decided to make chocolate cupcakes from scratch, as we had a container of cocoa powder with a recipe on the back for cupcakes. They came out pretty good, and one of my brothers even liked them.

I also decided to make yet another batch of eggless cookie dough. That stuff is addicting!!

So, here are some pictures of the cupcake making process. Enjoy!
