Recipe Notes: This cake is delicious by itself, or topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. You may replace the white sugar with coconut sugar and the brown sugar with honey for a healthier version and it will not affect the taste of the cake. The towel over the top of the crock pot prevents the condensation that will form from dripping back down on the cake, causing it to be wet. Store cake in airtight containers in the refrigerator and reheat in the microwave before serving.

About Me

Hi, my name is Alison. I live in a small town in the Midwest with my wonderful husband, Matt; our three beautiful children, and our cat, Willow.

I want to start this blog with a little bit of background about me. I have a degree in physical therapy, which I still do on the weekends, however, I started this blog to publicize other passions and hobbies that are apart of my life; Parenting and baking.

I began to be a stay at home mom after the birth of our second child, and during my time at home I discovered a love and passion for cooking, baking, and creating an overall healthier lifestyle for my family.

I am self taught, with the help of my grandparents teaching me how to cook when I was growing up, but I have had quite a few people express interest in my delicious recipes. So I have decided to create this space to share my recipes, tips and tricks for getting picky eaters to enjoy healthier foods, and reach others that share my passion!
