Drizzled Marble Cake

Purple Cookbook Challenge: Week 5, Day 3
Although I'm very busy these past few days, and haven't had time to post, I have still been in the kitchen cooking and baking for my family.  Cake of the week is the Drizzled Marble Cake (Spice and Spirit, page 366)  I liked the taste of this crumby yet not too dry cake.  My husband, on the other hand, didn't enjoy it too much as he found it too dry (although he did say it was much more moist then the bakery marble cake)

Savory Pizza

Purple Cookbook Challenge: Week 4, Day 6... and well on my way to my goal of at least 100 tried, photographed and reviewed recipes from the awesome Spice and Spirit cookbook.
Last night my family and I tried the Savory Pizza (Spice and Spirit, page 100).  With the blend of spices that was added with the cheese, the pizza was definitely savory.  Since my normally pareve oven had not been koshered since Shavuot (I bake more then we eat milchigs, so we use a toaster oven for dairy cooking) I took advantage and made large pies.  We all enjoyed the pizza, including the baby, who sucked on a piece of crust.
Have a good Shabbos!
