Whole Wheat Coffee Chocolate Cake

Whole Wheat Coffee Chocolate Cake

As a home baker, I always try to substitute All Purpose Flour with whole grains, especially in breads or muffins but sometimes it is inevitable to replace All Purpose Flour to get the perfect end results.

Skinny White Wine Sangria

Skinny White Wine Sangria

Delicious fruity drink that is really refreshing and can be a little dangerous, as it will creep up on you. It tastes so good, you dont realize how mush you’ve had until it’s too late.
