Apple, Blueberry, Peach Coffee Cake

Hello to this Amazing Coffee Cake! We recently met a family with kids(!) who live down the street(!) by the park(!) and pool(!) we frequent! They just moved in (like us) and will be Wharton people as well! Our kids get along well and we are excited that we have new friends. I made them this amazing coffee cake as a moving-in gift. I did not use a springform pan, instead I just used pie tins and there was enough for two! So my family got a nice breakfast treat, as well.

I have been busy traveling all over for Amazon training these past two weeks, and next week I leave again! I have learned so much and really enjoy the company. Everyone really does, "Work hard, have fun, make history."

Anyways, my mom is obsessed with making zoodles and she bought me a "Veggetti." I know it sounds hilarious... but it really is easy to use to make delicious recipes with zucchini "noodles." I tried a stir fry recipe with mine and paired it with salmon for dinner. It was a hit! We will be making it again!

*All opinions are my own


- 2 large zucchinis
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tsp. sweet chili sauce
- 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
- 2 tbsp. rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 1 garlic clove, minced

1. Using your Veggetti, make your zoodles with your 2 zucchinis. Cut your zoodles in half.
2. Place 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil in your pan over medium heat and stir in your zoodles.
3. Add your soy sauce, honey, chili sauce, rice vinegar, and garlic.
4. Sautee zoodles until tender and mixed well. About 10 minutes.
