nanas dirt cake (2)
nana usually makes this in a plastic flower pot. obviously purchased for this occasion. if you decide to use a flower pot, make sure you put a piece of tinfoil to clog up the little water hole at the bottom. this can be made in any type of serving dish. i prefer a clear glass one so all can see the layers. the last time i made it i used a trifle dish.

BIGGEST TIP EVER!!!!!
the recipe says to refrigerate for at least 2 hours…dirt cake always tastes best when eaten the next day.
the longer it sits, the better it gets!

if you decide to make dirt cake, which you should!!!, send me a pic and let me know how it goes!

lately on instagram...
backyard bonfires with my boys ❤ if you know me, one of the best words to describe me is "busy". i spend my days constantly running from one activity to the next. even though i love all that i'm doing, it's still easy to feel burnt out. especially with the holiday season so quickly approaching, i'm making it my intention so slow down. take a few deep breaths. sit and listen to the rain. treat myself to a coffee at my favorite cafe. get to a yoga class. make time to be still. 
you can't pour from an empty cup. how will you fill yours today? all i want to do is love on him but all he wants to do is hunt down the squirrels 😀
