Vanilla Orange Cream Cheese Carrot Cake

Vanilla Orange Cream Cheese Carrot Cake

Vanilla Orange Cream Cheese Carrot Cake. My Mom made an excellent carrot cake. I don’t remember the amount of times that I sat waiting to lick the icing spatula.

Championship Soup

Championship Soup

Championship Soup. I find the better one eats the better one feels. Soup is a great way to take in the needed nutrients and proteins. Using a variety of vegetables like sweet potato and bok choy you can achieve great tasting soups. It all starts with a good bone broth. I like to get a roaster filled with beef, chicken and pork bones that I freeze from past meals. I add onion, carrot, celery and roast in a 300m hundred degree oven for 4 hours.

I like the taste of ginger and it is most satisfying to the taste bud. When I was baking Xmas cookies in mass amounts for a restaurant bakery. The traditional Christmas baking was all done with hands on passion following original family recipes. Each batch of dough was hand crafted and the cookies that came from the dough batch were all slightly different with no two cookies looking the...
