About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake by Taste of Home

I found this delicious recipe from Taste of Home for Cream Cheese Pound Cake. It was very easy to make and turned out perfect my first time which I was very thankful for since it was my first time ever making a pound cake. I will definitely be making this often!

3 sticks of butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 cups of sugar
6 eggs
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; beat into creamed mixture until blended.

Pour into a greased and floured 10 inch fluted tube or Bundt pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1-1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Garnish with confectioners' sugar, berries of your choice, and whipped cream if desired. Yield: 16 servings
