It's WEDDING WEEK! My daughter is getting married on Friday, October 30th. It's a busy week trying to get the final details done. I have to make trips to the grocery store, and last minute errands for the Brunch I will be doing for Friday morning.
I feel a little better about going in/out of the stores now that I have my MedImmune Health Virus Protect+ for my Green Air protable Immuno 2.0 Diffuser. (ad)
GreenAir diffusers fill the air and your senses with the beneficial aromas of essential oils through a variety of technologies: ultrasonic, atomizing, and fan diffusion. There is a new concentrate Virus Protect+ thanks to Medimmune Health. Kills 99.99% of surface & airborne bacteria and viruses.
The main ingredient in Virus Protect+ is Chlorine Dioxide; a powerful disinfectant that reacts rapidly via oxidation to provide effective impact against viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae, and some parasitic microorganisms.
Efficacy Against Coronovirus, Under EPA registration, Chlorine Dioxide is proven effective against 99.99% of viruses and bacteria, including the human coronovirus. According to the CDC, SARS-COV-2 (more commonly known as COVID-19) is a new coronavirus strain.
Let's face it. We can't turn on the news without hearing about this virus. Thanks to Medimmune Health, VirusProtect+ has the concentrated solution that works with the GreenAir Pocket diffuser. The wonderful pocket sized sanitizer sprayer is convenient and on-the-go disinfection. It is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. You recharge it with the included cord.

It is easy to use. Simply press the button and the disinfectant sprays. The UV light also helps fight dreaded viruses.

It's Fall and it is time for baking! I thought I would share another beautiful Bundt cake with you. It's a delicious moist carrot cake. This is a great fall cake, and is perfect to add to your fall brunch boards.
My husband and I both love a good carrot cake. However, I left out the raisins on this one. There are many who don't care for raisins. I really didn't miss them. I added in some delicious maple pecans to this batter. The cake was delicious! Another great cake for breakfast! #eatcakeforbreakfast
Here's the scoop on the carrot cake:

Grazing Boards are just the best! Some call them char·cu·te·rie, however, here in my neck of the woods we call them #grazing boards.
I love making a brunch type of board for the office. A combination of a little meat, cheese & crackers, along side of crackers, popcorn variety, fall candies, and delicious desserts. That brings me to the beautiful Bundt cake. If you are like me, each time you go to remove the cake from the pan, you say a little prayer.
Bundt cakes are exquisite by themselves without all the icing, etc. They can be difficult to remove from the plan. This beautiful deep dark chocolate cake didn't lose a crumb. I admit I didn't a little dance for this one.
The cake base is deep rich dark chocolate mayonnaise cake. The mayo keeps the cake moist. I used buttermilk as well, and my favorite Bourbon vanilla. The Bourbon vanilla brings out a rich flavor. I found mine at Trader Joe's. However, I did see where you can order on Amazon a variety of the Bourbon vanilla's.
I topped with a dusting of just organic powdered sugar. It looks beautiful like snow falling. The cake was delicious for breakfast. If you follow my posts, you know that I love cake for breakfast. #eatcakeforbreakfast
Here's the scoop on the cake:
HINT: Don't spray your Bundt pan until right before you pour batter. Important!
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees:
Combine Flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, sugar in bowl. Fold in 3 eggs, buttermilk, water, and vanilla. Mix for a couple of minutes - then fold in the mayo. Mix well.
Spray your Bundt pan on every crease with Pam Spray. Don't flour or add anything to the pan. Pour the batter in evenly. Bake at 350 Degrees for approx 30-35 minutes. Oven temps vary, so you need to toothpick and remove from oven. Don't overbake.
Remove from oven and let cool for approx 30 minutes. Then turn Bundt Cake upside down onto cake plate and give it a little shake. This cake came out without any problems.
Dust with organic powdered sugar. Keep cake airtight with plastic wrap or container. Don't refrigerate.
Don't you just love October? It's the kick off of all the fun ghosts, goblins, monsters & more! It's fun making cookies with monster eyes, sprinkles, etc. Also, ghosts made from tootsie pops & tissue paper!
I had a blast on THV 11 The Vine Morning Show on Monday. Do to the dreaded COVID Pandemic, I was by myself in the weather garden. It also happened to be when a cold front came through Little Rock. It was about 50 degrees if I recall.
I am hot natured, however, in the shade with the wind blowing outside for about two hours, it gets a little nippy, even for me!
I made several boards for the Segment. Fun candy boards, and a Petit Jean meat & cheese board.
The fun thing was making the monster dark chocolate chip peanut butter monster cookies! I am loving the Professor Nutz Peanut Butter.
This Peanut Butter is the best for baking! I really love the taste, and the texture is perfect to use for baking cookies! I also used it in making homemade granola!
It took Professor Nutz around two years to develop this awesome PB. Professor Nutz contains 30 grams of essential vitamins & minerals, 7 grams protein per ouce, and only 1 gram of sugar! #winwin
The lower calorie PB is great for baking and snacking!
Here's the recipe for my Divine Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate Chip monster cookies!
