Mostly Homemade Mondays

Welcome back to Mostly Homemade Mondays, week two!  It’s a series for people who are striving for better food and a better lifestyle, but for whatever reason need a helping hand from a pre-made ingredient now and then.

The ground rules:
1) knock yourself out in being creative.  Want to share a new recipe?  Cool.  Want to post a photo of something you made?  Rock on with your bad self.  Want to talk about a dresser you bought from a thrift store and refurbished?  Back that truck up cause that is something I want to see!

2) Some part of your post should be “homemade”.  While a post on the Hamburger Helper you made last night doesn’t seem to cut the bill, making your own casserole from  meat and noodles that you didn’t make from wheat you grew yourself is something to crow about!

3) If you want to, go ahead and note on your post that you’re linking to this series.  And if you don’t want to?  Well, that is no skin off my nuts.

My mostly homemade item this week is a chocolate sunflower cake.

Take 1 delicious chocolate cake.  Cover in awesome frosting.  Place 16 Peeps around the edge, and cover the center with chocolate chips.  No one in my family likes Peeps, so they were really only for show.

So, let’s get started!

Yo yo, head’s up, this post might contain affiliate links which help to support my site. And my canning, seed buying, and aggressive saving habits.

Making this recipe or others?

Post a photo on my Facebook page, share it on Instagram, or save it to Pinterest with the tag #sustainablecooks. I can't wait to see your take on it!

  1. Wow, that is adorable!

    Thanks again for the grater. I am now on the hunt for even more recipes that will make use of it.

    Also, I got to reduce the pantry greatly by making granola yesterday!! All the old, stale nuts and seeds and stuff… into the mix.

  2. Cake was as delicious as it was purty!!! The photos are great, Sarah! Good job, high five! ;o)

  3. Soooooo cute! Thanks for the idea.
