Happy Birthday to Me!

Happy BirthdayAsha sang “happy birthday” to me and blew the candles on the cake – this is perhaps one of the best birthday presents I can ask for.

I baked a cake at home using this recipe from Joy of Baking. For a cake that uses one pan and no eggs, it is not only tasty but also really really easy to put together (easy enough to do it with a toddler in tow).

Birthdays so close to the beginning of a new year truly make for a great new start. Here’s to 2015 and Me!
