Hi guys! 

I am having a week and it’s only Thursday. My week started with having to buy a new tire because my Jeep has been flashing “low tire” for literally ever and I was worried I wouldn’t pass inspection with it flashing. And I was already 3 days late on renewing my car registration because hashtag single mom. 

My 7 year old went to the gym with me first thing in the morning (he likes the snacks they have) and I was all excited to get the tire done right after and get inspected and get the Jeep legal again. I was gonna get it all done before 9 am (!!) and have a super productive start to the week!!!

Did not go as planned. 

We walked around [insert big box store that has tires] for an hour after being quoted a price for the tire and told they’d have it done right away. And then they call my name and tell me that… they don’t have the tire size I need. 

Oh. But…wait. I walked around the toy aisles FOR AN HOUR with a 7 year old boy and there’s no tire?!

Anyway. I got a tire. It took most the day, cost twice as much as the original store had quoted me, and required a trip to a subpar Mexican restaurant because it was the only thing within walking distance of the tire shop.  

That was my Monday. It’s fine. At least I have cheesecake bars.

I never really had an opinion on pineapple until Nicole and I got matching pineapple tattoos while we were in Salt Lake City almost 3 years ago.

We’ve both been kind of obsessed with all things pineapple since then. We send each other pictures of anything pineapple we see in stores, anything pineapple we see on menus, anything and everything pineapple.

I got the idea of pineapple cheesecake bars stuck in my head weeks ago and bought all the ingredients and have been seriously procrastating.

I finally got them made this week and omg you guys, I’m so thrilled with the results and I can’t wait for you to make them.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake – cake for breakfast! Coffee cake filled with strawberry cheesecake and topped with crumb topping!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake - cake for breakfast! Coffee cake filled with strawberry cheesecake and topped with crumb topping!

I’m breaking all my rules with this one.

Normally, stuff in my favorite cake would be a big no no in my house. I like my coffee cake to be just cake with a ton of crumbly topping. And then I just eat the crumbly topping off and leave the rest in the pan.

But this cake really called out to me for some reason!

Strawberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake!

It’s got the cake and the crumbles that I love but it also has a layer of cheesecake-y filling and a layer of sweetened strawberries.

It’s good. It’s really, really good.

I caught both the baby and the husky trying to sneak a piece off the counter so… I mean, that probably doesn’t tell you much since both will eat pretty much anything… but, yeah I’m not sure where I was going with that one.

You should just make it. And don’t tell me you’re not a sweet breakfast person. Because I’m not either. But cake for lunch? I can get into that.
