I love seeing his smiling face. You would have never known everything that he went through if you didn’t know him. He is completely back to normal and in happy spirits. I’m so glad! He really scared us there for a while.
Yesterday, I mentioned that I had a stressful and long day. When I got home, I knew that I needed to do something that would relax me and take my mind off things. I knew I had to bake something. I had seen a recipe for an Apple Cake on Kristin’s blog and I knew that one day I would have to try it. Mike and I recently purchased a bundt pan and I had all the ingredients so this was the cake to make! I’ve never made a bundt cake before so I was pretty nervous about how it was going to turn out. I followed the recipe and hoped for the best.
Apple Cake from Iowa Girl Eats
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a Bundt pan with nonstick spray then set aside.
My first bundt pan cake!
This cake took a while to prepare all of the ingredients together to make. Thank goodness I have a mixer because I think it would have taken a much longer time if I didn’t. Let me tell you, it was worth every second of preparation to make this cake. It was absolutely incredible! The smell was even better. I love smelling apples and cinnamon baking. It’s such a comforting smell. This cake was incredibly moist and had the best apple and cinnamon flavor. Mike and I couldn’t get over how amazing this cake was! I will definitely be making it again for sure. Thanks Kristin for such an amazing recipe! You need to try making this! You will not be disappointed!
After baking, it was time for me to prepare dinner. I decided to go the easy route and try Annie’s Self-Rising BBQ Chicken Pizza. I am a huge fan of the Annie’s Self-Rising pizza. They used to only sell it at Whole Foods and now they sell it at select supermarkets. It’s kind of pricy but we got this one on sale and I figured it would be safe for my stomach because of no tomatoes.

I loved the pizza. I am normally not a huge fan of bbq sauce. I’m very picky with them and don’t eat it often but this tasted good. I didn’t mind the bbq sauce. I should have cooked it a little bit less because I like when the crust is softer but you live and you learn. It was still great and I would get it again.
Well that is all I have for today. Have a lovely Friday and a great weekend!
