Peanut Butter Chocolate Bundt Cake

We’ve officially been living away from home and in Dubai for one year. Although we’re loving living in the most exciting city in the world, we had some home sickness in the beginning for sure. Don’t even get me started on how much I long to roam the halls of my beloved Target, or stuff my face at Chipotle. I remember the first three weeks we were here, I was so homesick that I went to Ikea at least 2 times a week. Just to get a whiff of that beautiful Ikea smell. I would always feel at home when I was there. Plus, free play time for the kids. You can’t beat that. My first purchase was a nice bundt cake pan because I had to start from scratch on my cake pan collection. Sadly everything related to my kitchen was left back home. The one thing I miss most, right after my mixer, was my rusty, beat up cookie sheet. It was the perfect food photography prop!

I’m Kathleen and this is where I explore my sweet tooth and share it with you. I’m not gonna lie. Sweets make my heart flutter. Gooey chocolate chip cookies. Cupcakes with mile high frosting. I won’t even turn down fruit cake! Other things that make my heart flutter are my two beautiful children and of course my lovely husband. We’ve been married for almost 10 years and I can honestly say he’s my best friend. I love all things vintage, pretty, and retro and could spend hours lost in an antique shop. My newest venture is collecting vintage cookbooks. Are the recipes really as disgusting as the unappetizing photography? I remember using my mother’s “Cooky Book” by Betty Crocker circa 1963 when I was a wee one. I decorated those sugar cookie cut outs in a way only a mother could love. The memories of helping her bake in the kitchen will stay with me forever. I remember the smells, the love I felt, and of course the eating! So now I’m passing this hobby down to my little ones. A few things about me: I’m a super geek. I love Star Wars, Battle Star Galactica and all things Disney and Harry Potter. I Love Lucy is on at my house. At all times. Or at least in my little head. I listen to Christmas tunes all day every day from August to January. I have moved an average of 2.5 times per year in the last 10. We’re fancified carnies! I was in beauty pageants all through elementary school. I grow up on the street that Punky Brewster lived on. We were pals. I sometimes listen to 1920’s jazz while I shower. I’m a weirdo. I’m a full time massage therapist for Walt Disney World. And…I always cry when I laugh.
