Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake was a tradition in my family. We always made it for my father’s birthday. My father doesn’t care for crowds, and I never remember going out for his birthday celebrations. Once, we threw him a party when he turned 40. But otherwise, his birthdays were a stay at home affair.

My mother would also make this carrot cake. Which was odd given on everyone else’s birthdays, we ate a lot of store-bought cakes (especially ice cream cakes) or my maternal grandma, the family cake baker and decorator, would make them.

Food processors are genius when making this cake. I have memories of using a cheese grater to grate carrots. Now, I just throw all those carrots in my food processor, and wham, they’re shredded.

This cake stood the test of time with my taste buds. It’s delicious.

I don’t think I’ve ever met a brownie that I didn’t like. And what I like even better is chocolate and peanut butter together. These were delicious. Original recipe is from For the Love of Cooking.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These were probably some of the best cookies that I’ve ever made. I was very happy with them, and I think I’m figuring out what levels of cinnamon I can eat. (I have a slight allergy.) These were so yummy that I ended up making another batch the following week.
