|Baby Knives wasn't quite sure what to make of the candles!|
This past weekend I got to celebrate my 31st birthday with my family and a few friends, it was a fantastic birthday weekend: relaxing and full of delicious food, what else could I ask for? We didn't have a sitter for Baby Knives to go out for my birthday the way we usually would, so we had a night in instead.
I decided to use my birthday as an excuse to make a completely ridiculous, decadent, calorie-bomb of a dish: Pizza Pot Pie. Oh. My. WORD. This thing was insanely delicious and I won't make it again for another year, since I'm pretty sure I gained 5 lbs. just looking at it, but wow what an amazing birthday treat!
As if that wasn't enough, I made one of my favorite classic cake combinations: yellow cake with chocolate frosting. It's been my favorite kind of cake ever since I was a kid and this year I decided to make it from scratch. My sister has a cupcake business, so I knew who to call on for the best yellow cake recipe and she definitely delivered a winning recipe!
