Lemon-Cake-1

The Best Lemon Supreme Cake

Lemon-Cake-1

Look, I’m not going to throw out “best” on here very often, so when I say it I mean it.

This is yet another amazing-delicious-stuff-your-face recipe provided by Mrs. Mara, Vivian’s momma. It’s not even the lemons that really make this cake, it’s the moistness level. Is that a word? Moistness? This cake is melt-in-your-mouth moist. Like butta. If any of us could eat butter. And trust me, there’s no butter in this cake.

The lemon flavor in this cake is so refreshing, and by using a dairy-free cake mix as the base, SO.EASY.TO.MAKE. But trust me here, there’s nothing cake mix-y about this sucker. It is pure fresh in all directions.

Lemon-Cake-2

This week I’m heading down to Naples, my sister will be in Orlando and my parents will be in Atlanta. This is the first time that we will all three be in different locations. And it’s really weird. We do a lot together.

I was homeschooled growing up, so was my sister, and we always have done everything together. So it’s been a huge adjustment (mostly for me. I don’t like change very much.) traveling without my family, and us all being in different locations this week is just crazy to me. I know I’ll get used to it sooner or later, but right now it kind of gives me anxiety.

I’m one of those people who genuinely loves being around my family.

Even though we’re small in numbers, we’re basically like a walking party all the time.

Lemon-Cake-4

Cake is such a celebratory dessert. You have cake at birthday parties, baby showers, weddings, welcome home parties, going away parties, get well soon parties.

Cake = parties. My family = parties.

So basically this cake is the equivalent to my family? Or my family is the equivalent to this cake. Something like that. All I know is that I love my family. And I love this cake. Party on.

Superfood Kale Salad

I am going to let you in on a little secret. The key to the kale's success inside a salad. This is a secret tale as old as time (like what I did there?). The secret to the kale is this. Kale needs to be massaged. I'm not talking like a quick two finger rub down. I'm talking about a full-blown, hands only, deep tissue massage. And that, my … Read more

I could probably eat every meal of my life in this restaurant. The Wild Cow is located in East Nashville and offers fresh, awesomely delicious vegan fare. As the last stop on the McKenzie/Hunter road trip, we definitely went out with a bang. A yummy, over-the-top, local produce, VEGAN, food fantasy dream of a restaurant. I'm sure like most of … Read more

Nothin' says summer quite like a big ole glass of ice cold lemonade. You know what I mean, when the only thing that can really cool you down after a hot day out in the sun is a popsicle or lemonade. They are basically the epitome of summer if you ask me. I've been wanting to try to make infused lemonades for a while now. The idea started when I … Read more

Farm-to-table is the bomb dot com. First of all, it's a problem that every restaurant ISN'T farm-to-table. But, for those ones that really advertise it and make it a priority, I am giving you a massive applause right now. During the McKenzie and Hunter road trip through the southeast, we tried to eat at restaurants that were out of our comfort … Read more

Refreshing Mango & Lime Juice Popsicles

ML-Pops-1

I don't really know anything better than a hot summer day by the pool slurping on fast-melting popsicles. I love how sometimes when it's so hot (especially being a Florida girl) all I can really have to quench my thirst is a super cold and delicious concoction of frozen fruit juice. Popsicles have really "taken off" as the "cool summer snack" in … Read more

Heyo! Happy 4th of July Week! This is an interesting holiday for me considering that I've only actually spent a handful of 4th of July's in the United States. My family is like the super-travel family. My mom's birthday is July 5th, and her favorite thing in the whole wide world is to travel. So most of our 4th of July's have been spent looking … Read more

About a month ago, my parents and I went to Los Angeles for a big event to kick off my dad's new project with Usher. That's right, the singer Usher. I'm so proud of my dad and all he's accomplished, and my mom and I were extremely excited to be sharing that experience with my dad. (and to meet Usher, of course.) If you know me, you know that … Read more
