anniversaries and buttermilk cakes

DSC05821
Did you know that this is a very important date in history? Oh, yes. Seventeen years ago today I said "I do". There have been plenty of ups and downs over the years but I have to say the ups have far outweighed the downs and we are still happily chugging along on this train called marriage.

This morning as I was looking back at last year's anniversary post, I spotted this scrumptious post for Mini Buttermilk Cakes with Pomegranate and Lime. These were lovely! I decided that they were most definitely worth posting a second time. Pomegranates are so festive and gorgeous. I am looking forward to getting some holiday baking going. I'm thinking of baking some pumpkin bread pudding over the weekend.

Are you baking anything yummy over the weekend?

Have a terrific Saturday! I think I may be enjoying some delicious Thai food for my special day.

Happy Anniversary!

I can see why you wanted to give those another try, love how the color just makes you want to gobble them up. Or...eat them daintily off a fork...depending on if people are watching you or not. ;)

Baking...well...I roasted some peppers just now and THAT was delicious. Had them on homemade bread turned toast. I love the convenience of most foods but slow food has SUCH flavor.

Happy Anniversary Kim! Wonderful event to celebrate. I hope you got some thing nice from your husband too! Or even some kind of cooking that you did not have to do yourself. :)

Happy Anniversary Kim. Ours is on the 8th. It's the best decision I've ever made.

Love your anniversary cake and I know the pomegranates must make it very special.

Yum, Kim! These buttermilk cakes do look kind of perfect (smile). This is the kind of stuff I get a little crazy over during the holidays. I try not to have regrets about food though. I can always hop back up on the wagon;-)

Joanne said...

17 years and still in love? A definite achievement. congrats chica!

These buttermilk cakes sound glorious. I have been severely lacking in the pomegranate consumption lately!

Monet said...

Happy Anniversary! Seventeen years is worth so much admiration! I'm glad that you two are still together and in love. Such an inspiration. And your buttermilk cakes are also quite inspiring. I may need to make some of those this week. Thank you for sharing!

The imPerfect Housewife said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! I can't believe you can make and bake and cook all these amazing things and you're still skinny - you go girl. Hope you had a fab weekend ~ ♥

Allyson said...

Happy Anniversary, KIM!! It's always inspiring to see how couples who have been married for more than 5 years continue to chug along and love each more than they ever thought possible. And of course, as you have realized I'm sure, the way to a man's undying love is through his tummy! ;) I can't wait to try your buttermilk cakes when I get back to base. I just love it when pomegranites (which I clearly can't spell) are in season and LOVE finding recipes that use them. I'll let ya know how it goes! I hope your anniversary was perfectly lovely and here's to another year of wedded bliss!
