In the Kiitchen

Do you ever feel as though you are being watched... like a hawk?
Maybe it's my incessant paranoia...
Or maybe it's Oliver.

If loving you is wrong... I don't wanna be right!

Oliver is pretty much EVERYWHERE I am.
The jelly to my peanut butter.
The pea to my carrot.
The Sonny to my Cher.
So naturally he was in the kitchen with me as I prepared a little lunch.

Look at how that crazy cake went volcanic on me, right in the middle of baking!
Oh well, it was yummy none-the-less.
Gluten Free Yellow Cake with Lemon Glaze.
I'll be seeing that later, over coffee...
and possible after everyone else is in bed.
My son is going to a homeschool teen party tonight and we had to make dessert. I am making cupcakes for him to take but, I had a little batter left and only 1 cupcake pan.

And, do ya'll like a little salsa with your cilantro like I do?
We had tacos for lunch.
Unfortunately all the salsa from the past summer's garden is GONE!
Terrible planning.
So, when I want good fresh salsa I always turn to this recipe. It's the best.

Aunt Lynn's Salsa
1 large can Rotel
1 small can tomato sauce
1 stalk of celery, finely diced
1 small onion, finely diced
1 chopped bunch of cilantro
salt and pepper to taste

So good dear friends, so good.


  1. I LOVE lots of cilantro in my salsa....and you won't believe this, I also have a cooking buddy, I even trip over him occasionally...and his name, OLIVER!!

  2. And now on your playlist.... Chattanooga Choo-Choo, LOL!!

  3. Hi Rachel!
    How did we never meet? I saw your commment on my blog :) you homeschool in Deerfield? WE need to connect. Looking forward to that!

  4. Everyone needs an Oliver to hang out with :).

  5. Your cake looks delish. I want that cake!

  6. Salsa just isn't salsa without cilantro!!

    And I'm so glad you're liking my idea. :)
