  Guest Post recipe : Carrot Cake

Every now and then you come across a blogger who makes you smile. Today I get to introduce you to Courtney a fashion student, chef and fellow CLE-lover. I hope you enjoy the recipe she has “whipped” together for you, perfect for Peter Rabbit who might be hopping down your bunny trail for Easter weekend. Thanks Courtney & happy baking weekend to ya!

Hi Friends! My name is Courtney McCrone and I post my musings at 23 Skidoo Blog. I am a Cleveland-lover (what classy lady isn’t?) currently completing my fashion design degree in L.A.; upon graduation this June, and will quickly hustle back to the CLE to live the dream! This summer I will be working on launching some of my designs, so look out world!

Easter is just around the corner, so I am really excited to share a great recipe with you to enjoy with your friends and family–perhaps even some little bunnies that might stop by for brunch!

  Luna Bakery = love

Morning CLE. The other morning I had a the opportunity to have a pre-work breakfast at this bakery that only existed in my wildest dreams. It was tiny, filled with light and tucked away in the corner of a thriving neighborhood. Upon entering  the scent of butter wafts through the air like a spring perfume. The pretty bakery creations are displayed on the counters, the coffee is perking and the friendly staff wait to serve you a morning meal with a smile. Luna Bakery was not in my dreams but instead on Fairmount Boulevard in Cleveland Heights.

  inked for (lovin) Ohio

Happy hearts day all my fabulous CLE-lovers! This morning I stopped at Blackbird Bakery for adorable heart shaped shortbread cookies (for a meeting of course) and couldn’t help but note the ink on my friendly morning barista/baker…

For awhile I was in such a great habit of finding Ohio-CLE themed ink, but during our winter months it’s sometimes a hard job…being that we wear layers, sweaters and parkas on days like today. Anyhow, this sweet, CLE-loving tat caught my eye and so I bumped a few posts around to share with you a bit of true permanent city love. Happy Valentines everybody, keep on loving…it’s what makes the world go round. :)

(Aren’t the cookies too sweet, they were super buttery, sugary goodness! Love Love Love)

  Püre delite! Guiltfree Cupcakes

Right before the hustle and bustle of the final weeks of 2012, I received a lovely email from a new bakery in town offering me a few complimentary cupcakes…how could a girl turn that down? Püre delite; a guiltfree bakery located in both Strongville and Fairlawn make really great, healthy sweet treats and they were a welcome addition to the normal holiday treats.
