I would like to share a cake recipe that I recently tried and it is really the easiest cake recipe ,I use it as muffins recipe also .
This is ideal for busy Moms or anyone who like simple baking .I added some fresh blueberries to this recipe .You can add nuts or raisins or chocolate chips


1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup butter

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup milk


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.

2.In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.

3.Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.

Home made baby foods !

Since I had my first child my biggest concern always been his health .This is  what every mother wants for her child .I been buying organic products only and been reading a lot on how to raise a healthy child.
When the time came he was ready for solids I didn't know where to start from .There are so many baby foods sold out there and how and which one should I choose ,was a bit confusing ..
Making home foods been really stressful ,because I been using so many tools to make one little plate of food for my baby.I was using blander ,food processor ,masher and so on ,but nothing seamed to work for me ...
By advice of one of my friends I started using simple coffee grinder to make baby puree and trust me it worked great  .I couldn't believe it !!!
Now my kitchen is clean and I really enjoy making baby foods ,because now its so simple and easy ...
This is simple coffee grinder that I use.Just make sure you add little bit water when you mash the foods in it.

I just want to share this with everyone !!!I hope someone can benefit from this , as I benefited from my friend's advice ...

I would like to share these 2 sites that helped me a lot when looking for information on solid foods for baby :

Also ,please share your tips with me ...
I love Banana bread ,but every time I used to make it ,it just would not turn out the way it was supposed to be .Now I found this perfect banana bread recipe ,that really works ,just make sure you are exact in your measurments .I also add raisins or walnuts to my bread


3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed

1/3 cup melted butter

1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour


No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
I used 9 by 11 inch pan and baked for about 45 min and was perfect
