This Booze Cakes cookbook is what is making me happy today (and many other days). When it comes to required gifts like birthday, Christmas, and anniversary presents my husband is usually pretty horrible (love you, honey), but he’s really good at just randomly buying me things throughout the year. Oftentimes he seems surprised at how much use I get out of the gifts he buys on a whim. This cookbook was one of his random purchases that I love.
It’s one of those cookbooks that has a picture for every recipe, which just makes me want to bake everything in it that much more than I already would. I have been trying my darndest to bake my way through the cookbook. I still have a long way to go, but I’m making progress. Yummy, yummy progress. So far I have baked a mudslide cake, a tequila sunrise cake, a margarita cheesecake, chocolate covered cherries, and screwdriver cupcakes. Tonight I am trying my hand at a tres leches cake to take to my book club tomorrow night. My friend Karen is hosting and it’s her birthday on Wednesday, so I’m baking it to celebrate a day early. If it’s anything like the other recipes I’ve tried from the cookbook, it should be wonderfully delicious.
