Berry Yummy: Blueberry Swirl Muffins

Making a Comeback: Carrot Peach Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I’M BAA-AACK!!! OMG, guys, I am so, so, so sorry for not posting in like a WHOLE YEAR. (Like what is wrong with me???) There is truly no excuse for me being so inactive, but imma try anyway.

So here I am. Me again. Oh, and you may have noticed from the title, I’m “making a comeback.” And this phrase doesn’t just pertain to me; it also refers to Carrot Cake’s comeback. You see, there’s a lot of stigma surrounding carrot cake. Everyone thinks it’s just some gross old people food and don’t forget the basic principal of a carrot cake – vegetables in cake??? Ew, gross. But that’s where you’re wrong my friend…
