To another great year of delicious recipes and inspiration!

ShannonHappy Birthday!!

SamHappy Belated Birthday Andie! Thank you for being so amazing :)

JessicaHappy Birthday Andie!! Sorry its a little late! I feel like today is my birthday because I just received an amazing gift. What’s this gift you ask? Well the gift is you, your website. I just stumbled upon it about an hour ago and I’ve fallen in love. Your pictures & receipes are fantastically mouthwatering. And I adore your stories. I can relate to many of them, especially the one about nearly burning down your apartment. :) As your newest groupie I want to know if you have an e-newsletter I can sign up for or something of the sort? I am probably the only person in the world who does not have facebook (I’m proud of that quite honestly) so I wondered if there is any other way to receive your daily blogs. Thank you so much for your website. I am at the very beginning of my life changing journey & I’m grateful you have created a tool that will be helpful in so many ways.

Enjoy your birthday, I hope it is filled with pure deliciousness!!

VictorI feel a little bit silly. Most of your posts are from women, but I have to say a really enjoy this place I have stumbled upon. I don’t really know what it is except that your voice seems to hit just the right diction and humor to sooth me. I too have lost significant weight and feel sort of a future-shock.

Thank you very much. I will keep reading….

Vic

VictorOh…and Happy Birthday:)

EricaHappy birthday, Andie! I hope it was a wonderful day, XOXO.

KelleyHappy belated birthday, Andie! I hope your birthday was filled with marshmallow fluff and giant cups of coffee (your favs, duh) !

StephanieHappy Birthday!!

Rhiannon28 is such a great time of life! You’re just entering into your Saturn Return — so much fun!

Sophie JulietteHappy belated birthday Andie! :) I hope you had an absolutely wonderful day!

LindaJust discovered your website & love it!! You are inspiring, may you have many many happy days this year!!

Lynn28 – what a great stage of life. You’re already wise beyond your years, and now you’re getting past the 20’s, which are fun, but still kind of filled with peer pressure. So it’s just going to keep getting better and better. Every year above the dirt is a chance to become more authentic, celebrate your awesomeness, grow. I hope you had a wonderful day, and I hope you have a magical, Covered In Awesome Sauce kind of year!

PS – What kind of cake did you have for your birthday? I bet that’s out here somewhere, so I apologize if I’ve missed it. I saw a Food Network show recently where Tricia Yearwood made a cocoa cake with caramel frosting – her grandma’s recipe. She spoke of how it was her favorite cake and was her birthday cake every year growing up. It made me think about birthday cakes, and about how some people love the tradition of the same cake every year, and some mix it up. I grew up asking for a Boston Cream Pie as my birthday cake every year. Now I share my birthday week with both my husband and son (yep!), so rather than turning it into a 3 pronged cakeapalooza, we go with what the little man wants. So I wondered, with you loving to bake so much, if you had a Must Have birthday cake each year, or if you switch it up each year? Again, happiest of birthdays!

adminHey Lynn,

Thank you for the sweet message! I actually love to make a sour cream fudge cake every year on my birthday– it is OUT OF THIS WORLS rich. But this year, I got a cake from Ivy’s bakery near my hometown. It was a simple vanilla cake and it was dee-licious. Sometimes the purest, simplest cakes are best:)
