He liked it

Jim was totally surprised and liked the cake… and the taste!I know some people were wondering how I did this cake. The bun is two yellow cakes, frosted. The meat patty is a brownie and the condiments are fondant. The sesame seeds are sprinkles πŸ™‚


Some recent eats:

This was my first time trying Amy’s soup and I thought it was kind of spicy.. weird?!

Erika’s Chickpea Feta SaladΒ … it was SO good!Β 

Carrot-ginger soup. Such a good combo. I’ll be posting the recipe soon enough πŸ˜‰


In other news: Today Jim turns 21 and we are going out with his family to their local Korean restaurant. This restaurant is delish. Jim and I used to be addicted when we were first dating. I love how Korean food clears the sinuses!

I am going to start running today. (Probably 6 miles) I’ll let ya’ll know how I feel and hopefully remember to update my Daily Mile for Hollie, LOLZ.Β 

I plan on taking tomorrow off of running and then on Saturday I’ll legit start my cross country’s program of running 7 days a week :/ nervous muchhhh.Β 


Bible verse of the day:Β For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17


What do you think of Amy’s soups?

Does anyone else feel like running 7 days a week is crazy?

Do you like Korean food?


  1. Wow that chickpea salad looks amazing! I’m a goober for garbanzo beans haha πŸ™‚
    I’d be dead running 7 days a week…well at least all of that running will let you get lots of sleep at night! oh and I’m so happy Jim liked the cake, too! Have a great Thursday Allie!

  2. It’s official. You are the cutest thing ever. I mean really. That cake. For real.

    Okay, running 7x a week.. I ran yesterday (keep in mind I am thrilled when I can run 5-8 minutes without stopping, I am not some weirdo who gets lost on trails and accidentally runs 20+ miles!) and I don’t feel like I should run again today. Then again my body isn’t as used to running, so maybe that has something to do with it.

  3. That’s an awesome cake. It reminds me of Ace of Cakes on food network! Haha. Pure talent. πŸ™‚

    Btw I love your daily bible verses πŸ˜€

  4. That cake is amazing looking!!

    7 days does sound a little crazy. what about rest and cross training??

  5. Glad you liked the Chickpea Salad! It’s a favorite in my household.

    PS – That hamburger cake is so cute! What a great idea! πŸ˜€

  6. OMG, that CAKE!! Brilliant! Did you make the fondant, or buy it? And how long have you and the dude been together?

    I was going to call running 7 days a week crazy, but then realized that…I run 7 days a week πŸ˜€ But maaaaybe 2 miles on each of those. So I can pretend I’m slightly less crazy.

  7. So, I take it you weren’t able to rearrange that schedule any…:( Hopefully it will shift to 6 days once school starts.

    The chickpeas look yummy! Jim’s cake is rad!! Love the creativity, Allie.

  8. Yeeess! I like the first picture. Heheee you guys are so cute. The salad looks amazing too. And Korean food is one of my favorite, but we have to drive 30 minutes to eat a very authentic Korean food. But you will be surprised… whole street (big major street) full of Korean markets and Korean restaurants. Food is amazing!!! SF Bay Area is like an international food court. LOL.

  9. i love all things korean ( even the pickled raw crab – though it takes some time )
    that is a awesome cheeseburger cake allie ! i would so cry if i got that for my birthday ,
    i’m always excited to hear more about your running girl πŸ™‚

  10. I don’t feel like running 7x a week is crazy. As long as your runs vary and you cross train. I use to run 7x a week. Now I add more variety to my workouts.

  11. Wow, running 7 days a week! I used to do that too, but a couple of years ago…I am not sure if I had the stamina to that again πŸ™‚
    Korean food is tasty, I like it a lot! And how cute is that picture with Jim “eating” the cake πŸ™‚

  12. I need rest days or at least cross training days. Actually, at the moment I am proud that I even get out and run a few days a week =)

  13. that cake is amazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing!! fabulous job!!

    I don’t think running 7 days a week is healthy……it’s super hard on your joints! But I have also had a lot of problem with my joints (been told not to run by doctors before) and my mama is a doc and has terrible knees partly from running…………….. so just be careful, love!


  14. that cake is so cool! and very creative. πŸ™‚

    for me, running 7d/wk is a lot. i don’t think my knees could handle it. but then again, i think it also depends on how far you run…maybe it’s just one of those individual things?
