Life is good. Life is better with good food. Life is the best with great Italian food. Occasionally, you may come across my strong opinions here on Cake Duchess. I am passionate about great Italian food. I am very picky about what I consider great Italian food. You may know my husband is an Executive Chef from Italy. I spent part of my childhood in Italy. I have spent alot of my grown-up years in Italy. I know great Italian food. I'm a little snobby about it. There is one blog out there in this vast internet that KNOWS great Italian food. Paula from Bellalimento is an Italian food connoisseur. Not only is she super talented, she is also really nice. Sometimes we talk about how much fun we would have if we were neighbors. One day we will have a farm in Italy. Paula told me she'd clean the chicken coops and I will gather the eggs. Not a bad deal, right? I told you she was nice.
I love carrot cakes. I love really moist and flavorful carrot cakes. Carrot cakes remind me of when I was a little girl. I remember my mom always making carrot cakes. Mom knows how to make an amazing carrot cake. It seriously is the BEST carrot cake I have ever had. I have taken mom's recipe and changed it just a little. I didn't want mom to get too mad at me. I know you will add this recipe to your collection and share it with all your friends. You can omit the nut part if you are allergic. It will still be fabulous.
Look at my fall flowers. Aren't they gorgeous?!? I have pink, hot pink, and lavender bougainvillea in my yard. I also have those splendid golden trumpets. Forget the flowers...look at that cake! Please visit sweet Paula at Bellalimento and her gorgeous blog to get the recipe. You will spend hours just browsing through it. Paula is also a contestant in Project Food Blog.
