An Epic Fail, and An Epic Cake

Last night I made two recipes from Pinterest.  The first, Braised Beef Chuck Roast from The Bake Off Flunkie. 
For me, this was an epic fail.  If you like a vinegary BBQ sauce, then you will love this, we do not like a strong vinegar flavor in our sauce.  The meat was tender and had a great texture, we just weren't crazy about the sauce. 

My second recipe was AWESOME!!!!!  Bananna Cake with Nutella Frosting from The Ginger Snap Girl.  First let me just say that you had me at Nutella!  I think Nutella is awesome!  This is quite possibly my favorite cake, and I don't particularly like cake!  The only two cakes I have ever really liked are Boston Cream Pie, and Carrot Cake.  Seriously though, this cake is great!  The bannana flavor is a perfect counter balance to the super sweetness of the Nutella frosting.  You definitely need a glass of milk with this one!
This is also great for breakfast, trust me, I know. :-)
I hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. I will be right over and I'll bring my own mug for the cake. Vinegar is great for breaking down meats, but I don't like the taste either, is there any way you can salvage what is left? Maybe not...Blessings to you and yours.

  2. Never tried Nutella but have heard a lot about it. Maybe I'll have to try it some day.

  3. It's great when someone pre tries a recipe so you don't have to!
    The cake looks yummy though!
