The Day I Discovered My Droopy Ass

Why Jesus!!! Here I am about to go on vacation and trying on clothes to wear. Sad to say that I never noticed how much my body type had changed. I mean yes, at this point I have lost almost all my baby weight, and the scale is looking good, but then I turned around and there it was dropping and almost scrapping the ground. Why is this happening, and how can it be fixed? Read More

I Cheated The Whole Day

On Sunday morning I woke up washed my face, brushed my teeth, threw on some workout clothes, attempted to comb my hair and gave up really quickly, grabbed my cycle shoes and ran out the door. You see If I am working out early in the weekend then I need to stay focused and run out the door or, I will start folding laundry, putting dishes away, and start running my mouth talking a mile a minute ton, my husband. Which, he hears every other word if that. Read More

Fluffy Strawberry Mousse

Oh, Summertime I smell you getting closer! I am so happy. This is my second favorite time of year, Fall is the best but summer I welcome you with open arms. Summertime for me means busting out my patio furniture, lighting up that grill, planting beautiful flowers outside and cooking delicious light meals and desserts.

Spring However, is my test dummy. I always try out all new recipes and some of them make it to the summer menu and some don’t. This year I started out with a Strawberry Mousse, I will continue to perfect this recipe over the next few weeks. So as of now on a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this a solid 7 but soon it’ll be a 10.

Follow me into my kitchen and let’s get started!

Ingredients

  • 5 whole graham crackers
  • 2 tbs melted butter
  • 2 tsp sugar

The Mousse

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl crush the crackers, add butter and sugar. Mix until it is finely crumbled. Set aside.

In an electric mixer add cream cheese and strawberries. Add vanilla and slowly pour in the cream.

Now time to create the layers. Graham cracker mixture on first and then mousse and proceed back and forth to make as many layers as your heart desires. Then either garnish with a strawberry or more of your sweet tasty crumbs.

Extra BONUS!!!! You can freeze the rest and have 🍨

Makenzie’s Deadliest Chocolate Cake

There is nothing worse than seeing a cake that takes your breath away and then you taste it. It’s thick, dry and you are choking to death. Talk about major buzz kill!!!! Well, push that bad experience aside because I have a treat for you.

Over the weekend I made 2, triple-layer chocolate cakes and the frosting was made from peanut chew candy bars. I have never made a frosting out of a candy bar but I was excited to try something different and mix it up a little bit.

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 3- 3/4 cups Flour
  • 2 cups  Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 cups melted butter
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 cups Coffee
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 tsp Baking Powder
  • Parchment paper

In a large bowl combine all of your dry ingredients and mix together. In a separate bowl add all of the wet ingredients, whisk and slowly add in your dry ingredients.

Line your 3 pans with parchment paper and leave a little extra paper on all sides of the pan. This will make it easier to remove the cakes from the pan.

Bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
