Guess where we are headed next month? If you guessed Lexington, Kentucky, you are correct! In just a few weeks, we’ll be sipping on juleps and sampling every kind of bourbon the beautiful Bluegrass State has to offer. This is our first time visiting, so if anyone has recommendations or travel tips, please let us know in the comments below. We will be attending an intimate blogger’s retreat, hosted by the lovely and talented Lauren of Harvest and Honey, a fellow finalist at the 2016 Saveur Blog Awards. We became instant friends at the ceremony in New York and are looking forward to spending more time with her in her hometown during this eventful weekend she has planned. Follow along on our Instagram Stories as we visit horse farms, tour bourbon distilleries, and taste moonshine for the very first time. Speaking of liquor, can we please discuss this cake recipe we are sharing today? Inspired by our upcoming trip to Kentucky, we wanted to create a recipe featuring a classic southern ingredient: bourbon! So pick out your favorite bottle, put on some Bill Monroe, and let’s get this cake party started!

blubarb muffins

This post was created in partnership with Kroger. All opinions are our own.

Somebody please send help. We may have just set a world record for the most muffins consumed in one week by two husbands. The problem first became apparent once we started canceling all our plans just to stay home and continue eating muffins all day. To be honest, we should have known what we were getting ourselves into before making that fateful phone call last Tuesday. We were in a muffin-kind-of-mood and called on the Queen of Baking for a recipe: we knew that Rebecca Firth (www.displacedhousewife.com) would be the one to masterfully mentor our muffin manifestations, and upon regaining consciousness after the first bite, it was clear we had made the correct decision. So please continue reading at your own risk: blubarb muffins are extremely habit-forming and may cause a serious muffin dependency.

blueberries + rhubarb = blubarb

peanut butter cheesecake

peanut butter cheesecake

Yesterday we got to meet Oliver the pig. He’s the mascot for Hedley & Bennett, a local company known worldwide for their stylish handmade aprons. His owner Ellen was co-hosting a Southern-themed Sunday brunch at her house along with the folks from Bake From Scratch Magazine, and we were two of the lucky attendees. Tucked away in the steep hills of Echo park, this colorful and artistic home has breathtaking views of the city. Lush gardens filled with native plants and purple sages surround the property which is also home to a half dozen chickens as well as our new friend, Oliver. Apparently he was misbehaving before we arrived, so he spent most of the afternoon in a “time out” behind a wooden gate atoning for his sins. But after a welcoming Southern brunch featuring Rebecca’s homemade melt-in-your-mouth Meyer lemon scones, Brian’s brown butter hummingbird coffee cake, Gaby’s beer bread, and a live demonstration from Callie’s Biscuits on how to make authentically Southern buttermilk biscuits, we took a peek behind the gate and introduced ourselves to the peppy pig before saying our goodbyes. It was hard to leave of course, but we had some important business to attend to at home. And by “business” we mean peanut butter cheesecake.
