Happy early Thanksgiving!
It’s time to get with family, share some laughs, and cook till the turkey’s done! To celebrate this delicious holiday, we decided to share a recipe we re-created from a post found on Pinterest (originally from this blog). It’s orangy-vanilla goodness, wrapped in a warm, lightly crusty pound cake and definitely worth a shot this winter. We loved reheating it in the toaster oven on broil, with a little slab of butter on the side.
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 navel oranges, zested and juiced
1 container (6 oz) plain, nonfat greek yogurt
1 vanilla bean

The weekend before I moved to Boston from DC, we got hit with hurricane Irene. It was really nothing more than a touch of rain and light wind where we lived, but shops and stores shut down and many folks lost power. My husband and I were busy spending the nights packing up the kitchen (in my personal opinion, the worst moving chore of all) but during the day I had the fun opportunity to photograph the most delicious smelling baked goods I’ve come across in DC.
Rugla Bakery sells it’s yummy treats at the Old Town Alexandria’s Farmer’s Market, and it’s owner asked me to help capture the deliciousness in pictures. I’m extraordinarily happy to report I was given permission to sample! Comes in handy when the fridge is bare and restaurants are boarded up. Give Rugla a try when you’re in town!
