Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze

Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Glossy Chocolate Glaze

I made this Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake With Chocolate Glaze yesterday after Colt accidentally erased the pictures for a Roasted Shrimp Greek Orzo Pasta I had planned for you today.
OMGosh I was devastated because I'm trying to be more consistent for you guys and I thought I might finally be getting ahead again. 
But it was the perfect excuse to make a cake for the family because who doesn't love cake and the kitchens always been my stress relief.
Vanilla Chocolate Marble Cake happens to be one of my favorites and I haven't made one in forever so I thought this was the perfect time to share my favorite Buttermilk Marble Bundt Cake I perfected over the years.
It has a moist crumb, lots of chocolate flavor and easy to make glossy chocolate glaze.
Colt ate 3 pieces trying to get a photo perfect slice or at least that was the excuse he gave me.
I was barely able to get him to share a bite with me.
I pay him in food in exchange for food photo's and help in the kitchen.
It's a pretty good deal if you ask me!

A Boy And His Beagle.

A Boy And His Beagle.
Colt looked out the back door the other day to see what LJ was doing and caught this happening so he grabbed the camera.
LJ had invited Buddy up on the trampoline and they were just hanging out.
I'm pretty sure LJ invited him up after Buddy spent about 5 minutes howling at him.
He howls whenever  he's not getting his way, crazy dog.
LJ usually gives in..
These two melt my heart into a giant puddle of mush! 
A Boy and his beagle taking a nap.
Then they decided to take a nap.
I'm pretty sure Buddy had no complaints because there's nothing he rather do then nap with his boy.
Buddy the beagle taking a nap.
Just in case you had any doubts this had happened just the day prior.
No matter how much I say no dogs on the couch Buddy always climbs up with LJ.
He told me other wise he howls and won't stop.
It's true Buddy wears us down by howling until LJ lets him up on the couch or moves to the floor.
Such a spoiled dog but I can't help but love him because he loves my boy so much!

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches #SundaySupper

An easy recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches and why it's important to incorporate 25g of protein into every meal as part of a healthy diet.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

This post is sponsored by The Beef Checkoff in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.
This month I've been participating in The Beef Checkoff 30 day Protein Challenge.
It's amazing how much better my body feels when I'm consuming 25-30 grams of protein at Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
It's helped me cut back on midday and late night snacks by helping me feel full longer.
We've always tried to consume plenty of protein each day to help maintain our weight and build muscle as part of our well balanced diet but I didn't realize how much of a difference consuming enough protein in the morning and at lunch can affect how I feel for the rest of the day.
I've found I have more energy in the mornings on the days I start off with plenty of protein.
After being unable to participate in cardio this last year and a half I know that proteins played a significant role in me maintaining my weight along with a specially developed exercise plan by my Physical Therapist.
Consuming enough protein has been shown to help build muscle and reduce body fat along with healthy eating and exercise.
For me a strict diet isn't a good option because I love different foods to much but The 30 day Protein Challenge has been easy to participate in because I can still consume the foods I love like these Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches for an easy to make hearty lunch.
