Strawberry Surprise Cake

On the Menu Today~
Strawberry Surprise Cake🍓

I recently made Strawberry Surprise Cake,
when my grandkids were here for a visit.
After we finished frosting the cake and
they decorated the cake with sprinkles,
...lots and lots of sprinkles...
my grandson leaned forward,
bent down over the cake,
closed his eyes and took a deep breath....
He then said,
"Grandma, this strawberry cake smells just like a girl-friend!"
 I started to laugh and said,
"Well, I guess you're going to have a very 'sweet' girlfriend."

This yummy cake starts off with a packaged strawberry cake mix.
Strawberry extract adds an extra punch of flavor and
pink gel food coloring adds that extra splash of color.
A few tablespoons of strawberry jam is added to the batter,
adding more strawberry flavor and moisture.

The 'surprise' in strawberry surprise cake is a cream cheese filling.
Soften cream cheese, sugar and an egg are beaten together.
Half of the cake batter is poured into the bottom of a prepared bundt pan,
the cream cheese filling is spooned over the batter,
the remaining cake batter is poured over the cream cheese filling.

After the cake is baked and cooled,
it gets topped with a canned strawberry frosting,
that gets an extra flavor blast from strawberry extract.
.... How good does this cake sound....

Strawberry Surprise Cake🍓
is the perfect springtime dessert.
If you're looking for a Strawberry Dessert
to serve for Easter Dinner,
this Strawberry Surprise Cake is for you.
Serve this cake with sliced, fresh strawberries.

Creamy Lemon Chicken

On the Menu Today~
Creamy Lemon Chicken

With the long, dark dreary months behind us,
it's time to lighten up the menu a bit and
break out the chicken recipes.
Time to put the slow-cooker away and
the heavier recipes for stews, soups and goulash
back on the shelf for awhile....
After all, Spring has Sprung!
It's time for fresh flavors.

This is one of our favorite ways to prepare boneless,
skinless chicken breasts.
Lemon-pepper seasoning, meyer lemon juice,
chicken broth and heavy cream are combined with chopped spinach,
to make a delicious, creamy, lemony chicken dish served over a package of
Artisan garden-herb tagliatelle pasta.

Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash

On the Menu Today~
Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash

On my recent trip to my favorite grocery store,
the meat department was having a special on Hungarian sausage.
Since I had never tried Hungarian sausage before,
I quickly picked up a package.
Trig's Smokehouse is well known for their delicious sausage and
bratwurst so I knew it was going to be good....and it was~
Smoky, Spicy and Delicious.

I couldn't think of a better way to showcase this spicy sausage,
than in a 'goulash' or 'stew'.
This 'goulash' also has another favorite ingredient of ours, dried lentils.
Lentils are great to use in any stew-style, slow cooker recipe.
Lentils don't need to be pre-cooked before adding to the slow cooker, only rinsed,
cook up beautifully and lentils add extra fiber and vitamins, at a very low cost.
