Happy Tuesday and Happy Birthday to anyone who shares the same birthday as me today! Like me, I hope you all are taking some much needed rest time. You deserve to celebrate YOU today. To help you do that, I’ve included one of my favorite cake recipes of all time. My mom used to make this cake all the time when I was growing up and it was always the first to go at any special event or function. You’ll see why once you make it!

You may find as you get older that your body does not tolerate dairy like it used to. All my life I’ve been sensitive to dairy and instead of taking pills every time I ate it, I decided to find some recipes that were dairy free but still delicious. Now these recipes also don’t contain any meat but can always be modified to include it.
