The Easiest Chocolate Birthday Cake



Easiest Chocolate Birthday Cake


Having a 6 year old in the house means every birthday needs a cake I have learned. It was my birthday over the weekend and I was looking forward to a relaxing quiet weekend, when my son asked me could he help me bake the birthday cake. My relaxing weekend is gone, I thought. Don’t get me wrong, everybody’s birthday I get out the baking dishes and bake each cake from scratch spending hours decorating it; but I really didn’t want to do that for my birthday!

Lemon Chicken

This lemon chicken recipe is the best; it is really easy to make and the chicken is so moist it will fall off the bone. You only need a few ingredients to serve this fabulous satisfying meal. You can use either fresh or dried herbs in this recipe, I personally prefer fresh.
You can cook it in a slow cooker and then grill it for about 15 minutes to brown or cook it in the oven. However you decide to cook it, you won’t be disappointed.

This beef broccoli stir-fry is so easy and delicious; it feels like you are having a Chinese takeaway without the calories.

You can adjust the recipe and add mushrooms, or substitute chicken instead of  the beef. If you like your sauce thicker, you can add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch.

I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Delicious Vegan Chocolate Cake

I started making this delicious vegan chocolate cake years ago when I was advised by my daughter’s doctor to change my diet to vegan. (I was breastfeeding and she was having some health issues so we tried eliminating food to see if that would help) One of the days I really wanted some chocolate cake and found this recipe and completely fell in love with it.

This vegan cake is so moist you would never think it had no eggs or butter if you didn’t make it yourself. Even my son, who was 3 at the time and the pickiest eater you have ever seen, devoured it and asked for more! This cake is still a staple in my kitchen and every time I make it, it disappears fast!
