Domestic Goddess I am NOT, but Im working on it!!

Domestic Goddess I am not! Although I try, but probably not hard enough. Ive been working on it for almost 9 years, and I'm only 25% there on a good day!!!

You see I envision my life as a 50's sitcom, I wanna be June Cleaver. I know, I'm probably making you guys want to vomit as I write this, But I really do. I would love to be able to wake up every morning happy as I can be!! Make up my bed and fix the hubby Breakfast, and kiss him as he walks out the door!!! ( I totally do that anyway)  I would Love to be caught up on laundry, and to be able to do the  the grocery shopping during the day would be great, have a freshly vacuumed house, and dinner waiting on the hubby when he walks in the door, with a homemade dessert!!!! Yeah RIGHT, I know that's wishful thinking, but if I could be half of all of that it would be great!!!!

Unfortunately being a working mom, I'm lucky if I remember to brush my teeth in the morning and fix my hair. sometimes things can get a bit hectic!!

This weekend I think I may have uped my domestic Goddess status just a a smidge!!!!  I made a pound cake from scratch!!!!! OHHHH YEAH!!!!!!  So I'm going to get a little braggy for just a minute!!!!! Anyone who has ever mad a pound cake knows that there is a ton of work involved, mix, add, stir, mix add, stir and it has to be in order! I was sooo nervous. I just knew that it was going to be disastrous!!!! But Guess what!!! It wasn't, it turned out great, It looked like pound cake and tasted  like pound cake!! I cant tell you how proud of myself I was!!! GO ME, GO ME!!!!! So I think that I just upped my domestic Goddess status to 27% !!! HEHE!!! Now I'm thinking that I'm entitled to a brand new Green kitchen Aid mixer, don't you!??? Can you  tell my husband Please!!!!! I just know that If had one of those bad boys sitting on my counter, I would be whipping up cakes like crazy!!!

Here's the recipe I used, it was really really tasty! I did some research on how to make a good pound cake and several recipe's said that the key to a good one is to make sure that you use all the ingredients at room temperature!! One even said to leave them about as many as 8 hours! Recipe is from Food Network.


  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, plus more for pan
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
With a mixer, cream butter and shortening together. Add sugar, a little at a time. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Stir dry ingredients together in a bowl and add to mixer alternately with milk, starting with the flour and ending with the flour. Mix in vanilla. Pour into a greased and floured tube pan and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

It was super Yumm, I have less then  half left!!!! I hope your all having a great week!!! Wednesday is just around the corner!!! <3

  6. Umm, YUMMY! I wish you lived in AZ so you could share;-) I saw a Facebook comment the other day about how woman should act, like "she always does the dishes, looks perfect and never complains..." and then it ended with "if you are starting to believe you are a man, repost this" I thought it was hilarious- June doesnt exist;-)

  7. I could really relate to the June Cleaver idea. My sister's laugh because I love the home life of vacuuming, cleaning, and cooking. I can hardly wait to try your recipe. It looks really good. Thanks so much for sharing it and linking up at No Ordinary Blog Hop. I hope you will grab a button for your sidebar. Have a wonderful day! =)
