Welcome to the October edition of Glossies Made Me Do It, a monthly series I’m hosting with Lauren of Shooting Stars Mag and Erika of Cat Eyes & Skinny Jeans!
I love that this blog series pushes me to try new recipes, and this month, I had to bake this Fudge Cake featured in Southern Living. The recipe is actually an excerpt from Elizabeth Heiskell’s cookbook What Can I Bring? The cake is easy to make and super delicious.
I made my regular recipe alterations and cut out 3/4 cup sugar as well as swapping out the flour for my gluten-free alternative. Simple yet tasty, this Fudge Cake would make a lovely hostess gift or a yummy contribution to a bake sale. Or, you know, you could just eat it all yourself.
What did glossies make you do this month?

When I saw these Tahini Cookies on Shutterbean, I knew I had to try the recipe, and let me tell you, these cookies are good. They’re like a grownup version of peanut butter cookies. Not too sweet. A little smokey. Quite delicious. They, also, handle my gluten-free flour substitution well, so that’s another plus. Gretchen […]
There’s nothing quite like shopping for like minded people, and as a cat lover, I enjoy finding gifts for other feline fans. Put cat ears and whiskers on pretty much anything, and you have the makings of a purrfect gift. While a quick google will bring up tons of gift ideas for cat lovers, I […]
