Lemon Raspberry Yogurt Cake

Tart lemon and sweet raspberries give amazing flavor to my Lemon Raspberry Yogurt Cake. Yogurt keeps it moist yet light, and it couldn’t be easier to make!

I’m back! Or am I? I’m not quite sure yet. All I know is that Friday after work I was in the mood to bake something. So I made a Lemon Raspberry Yogurt Cake. And it turned out well. And Saturday morning while Carlyle napped I decided to take some pictures. And they weren’t half bad.  So I thought maybe I should start blogging again! I realized I have kind of missed this.  Even though I have about zero free time these days, I’m going to hopefully figure out a way to start sharing recipes with you again.  We shall see how this goes…

After such a long time away, we have a lot to discuss – like the birth of my sweet baby girl, my cross country move to San Francisco, and lots of Bay Area travels – but I will save all of that for other posts. For now, I will just talk about this beautiful, summery, Lemon Raspberry Yogurt Cake….

Ricotta Tomato Toast is a simple but delicious appetizer that is absolutely perfect for summer entertaining!

One of my favorite parts of traveling is the inspiration that it gives me in the kitchen once I’m back home. I love recreating dishes that we tried on our trips, or putting my own unique spin on things. Our recent trip to Italy inspired this delicious Ricotta Tomato Toast. We had an amazing bruschetta in Portofino and I couldn’t wait to make my own version. A tomato toast is the perfect summer party appetizer. I think summer appetizers should be easy to prepare – but still beautiful and delicious. This ricotta tomato toast checks all the boxes. And it pairs perfectly with a wine from The Seeker – because you can’t have summer entertaining without a nice glass of wine!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I have a hard time choosing one – you should see me in an ice cream shop. I sample as many as they will let me, and then still can’t make up my mind! But chocolate peanut butter anything is at the top of the list, and it is TheBetterHalf’s absolute favorite, so that is what I usually end up getting. And I have never had a better peanut butter chocolate ice cream flavor than the Double Peanut Butter Chip from McConnell’s. I take my ice cream very seriously so you can trust me when I say it is the absolute best. Then, when you sandwich it between brownies, and add some mini peanut butter cups to the mix, well the result is one of the best summer treats ever – Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches.

You don’t have to take my word for it though on the goodness of McConnell’s…I want to give YOU 6 pints of their awesome ice cream. Shipped from Santa Barbara right to your front door – scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!…

Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We are just hanging out in NYC and I couldn’t be happier! I feel like we haven’t had a relaxing weekend in the city all summer, so I am excited to just chill! And bake. Lots of baking on the agenda! And if you are looking for something delicious and summery to bake this weekend, might I suggest this Mixed Berry Galette? It is one of my absolute favorite summer desserts.

You might remember this Rustic Strawberry Peach Tart from last year. It was one of the best things I made all summer long! My Mixed Berry Galette is basically the exact same thing, except with a different filling! I decided to change the name to make it sound fancy – but don’t let the fancy name fool you. This couldn’t be easier to make!
