I'm not ashamed to admit that there's a lot I love about the United Kingdom. So many of my favorite shows are set there (in one era or another)(and for the record, Sherlock tops my list right now, without question or competition), and I enjoy the accents and overall demeanor of its people.
That being said, I'm happy to promote a site from across the pond that's full of recipes, both British and otherwise. This carrot cake comes from a recipe found on Baking Mad, and it's one of the best I've ever eaten. Sure, I had to do some converting (when will we all be on the same measurement system already!?!), but it was worth it. I love special add-ins when it comes to carrot cake, and pecans, coconut, and raisins are some of the best.
|I ♥ carrot cake.|
Go ahead and peruse Baking Mad, and I defy you to come away without seeing something--whether it be unique muffins or interesting cakes--that you'd like to make!
In other news, my brother has decided to raise some chickens. He has layers, which will hopefully keep him well supplied with eggs, and boilers, which will meet a fate of which we will not speak quite yet.
I asked him to take pictures keeping me abreast of their growth and progress in life, so hopefully you'll see these cute little buggers again soon!
|Will you please just LOOK at that itty bitty wing?!|
I'm too attached to them already.
