Butterscotch & Beer Bundt Cake

A lovely cake made with rich Bock beer and butterscotch!

I'm a little embarrassed that I'm posting recipes from nearly 3 years ago, but here we are. This cake was made for my husband, Nick, for his birthday in May 2020. He loves butterscotch - it's one of his favorite sweets. He enjoys beer and does like a Bock occasionally. I thought it would make for the perfect birthday cake. I personally did not anticipate liking this cake at all because I'm not a fan of beer, but I was pleasantly surprised. It had such a wonderful balance of the more savory beer flavor with the sweetness of the cake base and butterscotch. The glaze was magnificent. It's very much like a rum cake!

General Tso's Chicken

Light, crispy chicken tossed in a sweet hoisin-soy sauce!

I am no stranger to posting a recipe every once in a while that isn't necessarily one I like because I have made it for my family and they liked it. This is one of those recipes. Nick loves General Tso's chicken and I've been trying to find a recipe that I like, but coincidentally (but not really at all), most of the recipes taste the same. I like Asian foods and I love hoisin especially, but I'm not a huge fan of this recipe. I don't by any means hate it, but I wouldn't choose to eat it. However, it gets posted on my blog because it's a solid recipe that my husband loves and my blog is my recipe box. :) I hope that this brings a little joy to someone who was looking for a good General Tso's recipe and that you love it as much as Nick does!

Crockpot Southern Collards

Collard greens cooked low and slow to perfection!

I adore collard greens and I was delighted to find a recipe for the crockpot. My next mission is to find an Instant Pot recipe. I really cannot get enough of them. The low and slow method is the way to go and the flavors were fantastic.
