If you saw my post on the famous TikTok cinnamon rolls with heavy cream, you know that TikTok is totally a source of inspiration for me these days.

I recently had a video pop up on my FYP of someone making a strawberry cake using a cake mix. I didn’t love their method, but I loved the idea!

So I decided to turn to my own archive of cake recipes and figure out how to tweak some existing recipes to make a fun and simple strawberry cake.

The result is this pretty pink cake that is bursting with pieces of fresh strawberries. It’s fun, it’s pretty, and it’s so delicious!

If there is one thing that’s true about me, it’s that I am a planner. 

I’ve never been a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants type of person and I 100% lack the love for spontaneity – it’s just never been my thing. Which is why summer can be a little much for me sometimes. 

Between last minute play dates and impromptu cookouts and pool parties, I can get a little overwhelmed. 

Because of this, I’ve learned to always have the basics on hand for quick summer entertaining. 

Things like hot dogs, buns, chips and strawberry popsicles come in mighty handy when you’ve got a group of kiddos complaining that they’re starving!

And even though I love a perfectly toasted s’more, easy summer dessert recipes are also a  summer must around here. 

Recipes like brownie trifle, no-bake peach cheesecakes and this easy pineapple upside-down cake are the perfect way to end any summer evening!

St. Patrick’s Day is one of those strange holidays that always sneaks up on me.

Even though I’ve been blogging for well over a decade at this point, I still get to the beginning of March before I remember that readers are going to be looking for St. Patrick’s Day recipes.

Once I finally remember that it’s around the corner, I usually try to put something together for you guys. Some years it’s savory recipes like Irish Soda Bread, while other years it’s desserts using Irish cream, such as Baileys Cheesecake.

This year, I decided to lean into the green theme with this super easy pistachio bundt cake.

I feel like we’re pretty much stuck in an endless winter situation here in Ohio.

Yes, I know it’s only February. And yes, I also know that us midwesterners should be used to these dramatic weather changes, but it’s still annoying and I’m still going to whine about it.

Guys, it was 65 degrees 2 days ago and now we are expecting yet another winter storm.

One thing I do love about snow days is that Elle and I can get into the kitchen and whip up simple desserts that she can make almost entirely be herself.

Easy recipes like peanut butter pretzel bars, rice krispie treats and these raspberry bars are amongst some of our snow day favorites.

I don’t know about you, but I live with a couple of cookie monsters.

Eric is a store-bought cookie lover. Open up our pantry and you’ll find Oreos, Thin Mints and his fave – Pepperidge Farm Dark Chocolate Chunk, but my girl likes to whip up AND eat all sorts of cookies with me in the kitchen.

I don’t know about you guys, but this time change is hitting me hard.

Instead of losing a simple hour on the clock, I feel like I lost no less than 3 days. Okay, that may be a little bit of an exaggeration, but this girl is tired. However, I do have to say that I am loving the extra daylight in the evening even if the weather here is super cold, rainy and windy. Welcome to spring in Ohio.

Even though the first day of spring is still a few days away, we’re celebrating with this super simple banana poke cake.

After almost 13 years of blogging here on My Baking Addiction, it’s pretty safe to say that I go in phases with what I’m whipping up in the kitchen.

Sure there are seasonal ingredients like pumpkin in the fall and cranberries in the winter, but beyond that, I typically bake up whatever I feel like baking up and right now I’m in a total cookie phase.

From my very favorite chocolate chip cookies and Peanut Butter Blossoms to these Gooey Butter Cookies, I just can’t enough of cookie baking.

My sweet Elle has been very into oranges lately. So much so that I have been buying them for her by the crateful at Costco.

She’s very particular about the way they are sliced, so I can basically supreme an orange with eyes closed at this point. But I’m happy to pump my girl full of vitamin c at this time of year.

Since we’ve had so many oranges on hand lately, I’ve been thinking of ways to use them in baked goods like this Citrus Poppy Seed Cake and we’ve even made several batches of Holiday Stovetop Potpourri.

The best thing about this cake is that it is super simple to make which is always a bonus at this time of year!
