July 23, 2014
I want to eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, second dinner, snacks, tea time, recess, dessert, brunch, brinner and every other second of every day. 
 
 
This makes me happy. You want to know what else makes me happy? 

This.

 That, my friends, is the most wonderful, beautiful, amazing photo-shoot crasher on the face of the planet. I’m not even a little bit ashamed to admit that I am completely and totally infatuated with her, and she may or may not run the shots in this household. When I say may or may not, I mean she 100% definitely rules this place. 

How the heck do you say no to that though?! 

I’m going to have to practice, because before I know it she’ll be a teenager. 

Heaven help me.

Anyway, I know she kind of just stole the show, but I mean c’mon. How am I supposed to take pictures of that cake when she’s around? 

You are here for the cake I guess though, so I will tell you that this coffee cake is divine. 

Raspberries are one of my favorite fruits and they shine in this coffee cake.  

Insanely delicious Raspberry Streusel Coffee Cake. Make this for breakfast, make this for lunch or dessert or dinner. Anytime of the day really. It will be awesome.
