Weekend Update #1

We/I had the BEST weekend!!! It was filled with Matt, a good movie, GREAT friends, even better food and yard work! Friday night Matt and I went to dinner and then to see Date Night which was a sold out show! Date Night is so silly and the story line is so stupid but with that being said it is LAUGH OUT LOUD funny!! It was a perfect movie to relax and have a great time you should see it!!!
So I bought a new cookbook and surprisingly it is Trish Yearwood’s second cookbook which I LOVE!!! And Saturday night I had a dinner party to go to and a perfect excuse to make something new……..

I made her Red Velvet cake which was amazing! I love the red batter!

It was a 3 level cake so I had to go out and get some new pans…..

And honestly what is better than homemade cream cheese icing?

So the actual cake was not that pretty…..she leaves the sides open so you can see the layers but mine looks NOTHING at all like her picture……………. Don’t judge

But thank goodness that is tasted a million times better than it looked! It was a hit and I was so proud! ha

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend….stay tuned I have pictures from the JH Board of Directors dinner I went to Saturday where I had SO MUCH FUN!!!!

    I think Trisha Yearwood is coming this weekend for a book signing. Your three layer cake turned out beautiful!

    I saw her recently on The View advertising her new cook book – it sounded surprisingly good! The ladies of the show were as obnoxious as ever, but all of the food she brought out looked wonderful!Keep us updated if you try out more of her recipes
