As I told you before, I am not a professional baker but serving my family a homemade cake every week is a must so I am always playing around in the kitchen :)

I was never a fan of frosted cakes (except for carrot cake of course), I always prefer old fashioned cakes that you enjoy with a cup of coffee without feeling so guilty & heavy! I have been trying to develop a honey cake recipe for almost 2 years but they always came out a total disaster.

CHOCOLATE DIRT CAKE

Yes, I don’t like dirt cake at all. I bought it from every single store that sells it & still … I HATE it. I don’t know but I always find it too sweet & watery; mmm … not my kinda dessert.

This Easter my kids are almost 2 years old & I really want them to start enjoying all our Easter traditions but they are still too young for coloring/painting eggs (we will end up with an EGG mess … I am sure hahaha). I searched the Internet for other creative ideas that my kids can enjoy & came across hundreds of dirt cake recipes. I liked the idea a lot as my kids will love decorating those little pots because they are now very interested in learning about trees, flowers & plants.

Besides, I couldn’t believe how easy it is to prepare this stunning looking dessert. NO baking whatsoever is required, just some crushing, mixing & whipping woohooo.

Let me tell you my story with French toast.

I have been making French toast for ages; it’s just some milk & eggs beaten together with some flavorings! No need for a recipe, right?

Mine came out tasting nice but the texture always varied from a little dry to soggy although I made sure I never under or over soaked my toast so why the inconsistency in texture?

No cooking involved!

It is a “hands free” recipe with the fridge doing all the work.

Great News, ha?

Happy Holidays :)

It’s now my ritual every year to gather both; my family & my husband’s family for a big Christmas lunch.

I prepare many new savory & dessert recipes for this day as I like to start every new year with new dishes (a stupid thing but I believe it brings good luck)!

This year one of the the desserts that made it straight to the top of the menu list is this cheesecake!
