So sorry for not blogging...it has been awhile. I've been enjoying the summer here even though it has been extremely hot and humid with very little rain. Needless to say watering the plants has been an all consuming task, among other things.
I have been doing some baking lately. Last week I made a homemade peach cobbler which was delicious even if I do say so myself and today I decided to make an Almond Cake. While this recipe is time consuming, it is well worth the time spent making it. Here are a few photos of how it turned out:
I added the slivered almonds in the center of the cake to satisfy husbands desire for "nuts" Hah
Here is a copy of the recipe from Provision 52, a website I wrote about here: Provision 52 along with another great recipe I found from their website.
I hope all of you who try this will like it, I sure did. With summer slowly coming to an end, I am awaiting much cooler temperatures and less tourists (I haven't been to the beach or Pier since July)so that I can stroll down the Pier and window shop once again without a rush of people and long lines.
I will be writing about several new Etsy shops I have scouted out this week, so stay tuned.
