Happy Sunday! How was everyone’s weekend? TheBetterHalf and I were in DC to celebrate his sister’s graduation from college. So even though I was not baking bread this weekend, I can still tell you about it!

Remember this English Muffin bread? I love it because it is one of the easiest yeast breads I have ever made – and it is delicious! Well I decided to change it up a bit and make a cinnamon raisin version. It is equally as easy as the original, and it tastes even more delicious – because in my opinion, you can never have enough cinnamon!…

I always hear people say that they are either a lemon lover or a chocolate lover and I never really understood that – why can’t you be both?? If I had to pick, I (obviously) pick chocolate. But I really love lemon too! So even though I could eat these chocolate frosted donuts every day, I wanted to give lemon donuts a shot.

And wow, I’m so glad I did! These baked lemon donuts are absolutely amazing. The flavor is delicious – so fresh and citrusy.  I think these would be a lovely thing to make for Mother’s Day brunch!

Did you all have a nice Easter weekend? TheBetterHalf and I were in St. Louis for a quick trip to see my family and we had the most gorgeous weather – it almost felt like summer! Which means that it must be smoothie season! I love making smoothies year round, but once it starts to get warm out, I can’t get enough of them. Smoothies are so easy to make- this mango smoothie only has four ingredients! Plus it tastes delicious and is healthy too.

Grapefruit Yogurt Cake | chezcateylou.com

Grapefruit – I always assumed this was a pretty inoffensive fruit. Slightly tart but usually pretty sweet. Pretty to look at. Super healthy. Delicious juice. What’s not to love? And then I met TheBetterHalf. Apparently grapefruit can be a pretty polarizing fruit. He HATES them. Which I find so strange because he eats pretty much anything – he’s a big fan of food. I think that’s why I like him so much. But something about the tartness of grapefruit is just too much for him. It is actually hilarious to watch his face if he tries a bite of my grapefruit or a sip of the juice.

So I figured that this grapefruit yogurt cake would have to be eaten solely by me. Which I was totally ok with. Well it turns out that when you mix grapefruit zest into a yogurt cake and top it with a sugary grapefruit juice, he likes the stuff! Phew – I really didn’t need to eat a whole cake by myself.
