A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I was making a berry trifle, and I took a ton of photos so I could show you guys the process.  It’s not really a recipe per se, more like a bunch of recipes all thrown together. Once you make up each component of [...]

Vanilla Raspberry Cake

I actually made this cake a couple weeks ago, but I’ve been so caught up in thinking about Thanksgiving that I didn’t post it right away.  As you guys probably already know, I’m pretty fond of the baking mixes from Trader Joe’s, especially lately as I just haven’t had as much energy for baking or [...]

Strawberries & Mango Butter

A friend of mine recently told me about Trader Joe’s Mango Butter.  (She also told me about the dried green mango they carry, which I’m totally addicted to.  I think she’s trying to make me fat.)  A couple days after seeing her, they were sampling the mango butter in the store with strawberries.  And, just [...]
