The cheesecakes, and their toppings, were a hit at the wedding tonight and may have gotten me another booking for the end of August. I feel exhausted, sore and very satisfied and can't wait to do some normal baking for my guys tomorrow. Life is good when you cook for a living, for a hobby and for those whom you love.

Thanks, Babe, for the recipe for Pineapple Cookies. I will look for a pineapple flavored cake mix and give them a try. They sound easy and delicious, especially with dried cherries and pecans!! (Hey, just a thought -- I might even put in some chopped dried pineapple!?) Thanks, again!

AMSeccia,
Here's the recipe for the carrot raisin bread. Enjoy!

Note: The prep time does not include the two cool times.
Ingredients
1 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup milk
cup vegetable oil
1 egg
teaspoon vanilla
1 cup grated carrot
cup raisins
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray three small (5-by-3-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray; set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Stir milk mixture into dry ingredients until well-blended. Sprinkle carrot and raisins over batter and blend until evenly distributed.
Divide batter evenly among pans and bake 35 minutes or until a tester inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool in pans 5 minutes on cooling rack, remove from pans. Cool on rack an additional 15 minutes before slicing. Serve warm.
Per serving: 499 cal.; 6 g pro.; 75 g carb.; 20 g fat (4 sat., 5 monounsat., 11 polyunsat.); 38 mg chol.; 476 mg sod.; 3 g fiber; 45 g sugar; 36 percent calories from fat.

Went to a baby shower brunch today.
I baked chocolate cupcakes and a quiche to take (and more cupcakes and another quiche to keep home)

I don't blame you, Babe, for not baking -- 104!!!! YIPES!!! I'm north of you about 30 minutes east of San Francisco. It also gets warm here, but not that hot! We were in the high 70s/low 80s yesterday.

I made the Weight Watchers Pineapple Angel Food Cake yesterday for a bbq and served it with fresh strawberries, pineapple chunks and a dollop of whipped cream. Everyone loved it. I will be trying your Pineapple Cookies soon.

Hope the weather cools for you and hope you are not near the fires that I hear are burning in the south.
