We want to continue to learn and try new things, Every Monday we are going to try to post either a product/recipe/craft etc. of something we tried during the weekend. It will force us to post something new and also try some new stuff. 

Something new #1-
Making pound cake
Rating: Success!

The recipe is from Martha Stewart website. Get it HERE. The recipe was very easy and results were great. I don't think we will ever buy Pound Cake again. The Kitchenaid came in handy since you have to cream the sugar and butter for 7-8 minutes. 

Some of the ingredients. I never realized how many eggs are in Pound Cake!
There is also a good amount of butter!
 Creaming the butter and sugar YUM

 More creaming...and adding the flour, eggs, vanilla and salt

 All done. The Kitchenaid did most of the work!

 TAH DAH! It smells so good. My only complaint would be- that it takes so long to cook! 65 mins. It also has to sit out for 30-60 mins to cool. So if you are in a rush, this is not the thing to make.
It was well worth the wait!

I think the Pound Cake would be great with some strawberries and cream. Yum! -Kristen
