Welcome! Growing up I was an extremelyyy picky eater! At around the age of 7 I decided I wanted to be a vegetarian. At the time, I didn't know anyone else who didn't eat meat, but I knew I didn't like how any of it tasted. Also, the thought of eating animals made me sick!! It wasn't until I was older that I found out there is alotttt of delicious vegetarian food, I just didn't know it! I often cook meat dishes for my boyfriend but to this day I am still a vegetarian and don't plan on ever changing!
The title of my blog, 3pm Sunday Dinner, is a tribute to a memory of my childhood. Every Sunday my large family of aunts, uncles and cousins would gather at my grandparent's house for an early afternoon Italian dinner. I don't think I will ever forget the smell of sauce cooking in the house..yummm! Food really brings people together and builds lasting memories….I think that's why i love to cook & bake so much (baking is my specialty though!) I not only enjoy it, but I just love when others enjoy eating what I've made! As a small start, here are some photos of cakes I made over the past year. Enjoy!
Dad's birthday cake- Pistachio cake with pistachio icing, covered in fondant
Sister's birthday cake-this was a multi-layer rainbow cookie cake with seedless red raspberry jam between the layers & a light coating of vanilla butter cream, covered in fondant
Mom's birthday cake-simple yellow cake with vanilla frosting, covered in fondant
boyfriend's poker chip birthday cake-just a small dark chocolate cake with caramel frosting…poker chips were made with vanilla fondant..all letters were made with white chocolate
