Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt CakeThis May will mark our family’s one year anniversary of living in Dubai.  I’m shocked at how that creeped up on us.  We absolutely love it here and we won’t be moving back to the States anytime soon, mostly because my husband has at least 5 years of work left!  Dubai is growing like crazy and they’ve been on a theme park craze lately.  (Chris is a project manager for an indoor theme park that’s being built) It’s only one of the may under construction right now.

Although we’re loving living in the most exciting city in the world, we had some home sickness in the beginning for sure.  Don’t even get me started on how much I long to roam the halls of my beloved Target, or stuff my face at Chipotle.  I remember the first three weeks we were here, I was so homesick that I went to Ikea at least 2 times a week.  Just to get a whiff of that beautiful Ikea smell.  I would always feel at home when I was there.  Plus, free play time for the kids.  You can’t beat that.  My first purchase was a nice bundt cake pan because I had to start from scratch on my cake pan collection.  Sadly everything related to my kitchen was left back home.  The one thing I miss most, right after my mixer, was my rusty, beat up cookie sheet.  It was the perfect food photography prop!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt CakeSo here’s to one year of middle east living under our belts!  I think this Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake is the perfect way to celebrate!
