young me II

I’m Dana..

From the Homepage, you probably figured what all this is about so here’s the behind-the-scenes:

I call my blog I’ve Got Cake because I truly believe that like Cake & Ice-cream, good Food & great Style should go hand in hand even though truthfully, my closet will always be a work-in-progress.


I’ve learned that I am a minimalist when it comes to my style.

I find that I lean towards simple pieces that would contrast each other when combined and I have absolutely no shame in saying that I troll other blogs for inspiration.


But now cooking, cooking seems to come naturally to me.

I know simple ingredients can create remarkable meals, the same way I know healthy food and flavor still go together, and you don’t need to put in tons of time or tons of butter to get either one.



I started this blog because I can’t let myself get too comfortable at where I am and what I’m good at.

Because we both know, there’s always gonna be room to climb a little higher, do a little more, get a little better…you know the the drill.
And it’s so much harder to give up trying in front of others.


So never fail to evolve your style and never fail to eat well.



I curse a lot.
Soooo unladylike, I know, but the food makes it worth your time so…. you know…. gimme a shot here.

And if you’re new to blogging, I’m working on this Blogger Tips page that you might find helpful in figuring out all those little unwritten rules of blogging.

  1. Wow your blog is so good I almost wish I hadn’t discovered it, it makes me want to eat all the food in the world!
    All of your recipes are literally mouth watering, this is like food porn to me! I can’t seem to find something on your blog that doesn’t appeal to me!

  2. So happy I stumbled upon your blog. I’m excited to read more! I’m just now starting to cook … gonna start referencing your posts. “I know simple ingredients can create remarkable meals, the same way I know healthy food and flavor still go together” -so true girl!!!! You’re an inspiration! xx

  3. I like your: About me piece 🙂 It has balls 🙂 Thanks for liking my post. I will definitely check your Blogger Tips as I am fairly new to it 🙂 You have a new follower! Follow me if you interested in more simple recipes…. I’m only warming up:)

  4. Hi Dana,
    I already love your blog. Hard to think (coming from the Ocean State) that I can learn anything about cooking clams, but I love your technique for simply cooking clams and mussels in 2 SEPARATE pots. Wow! No more going crazy trying to watch these 2 bivalves species in the same pot. Thanks 🙂

    1. Aww I’m so glad you found that helpful!
      I just find that clams cook differently from mussels so it just made more sense to cook them separately and combine them later 😀

      Thank you so much btw Eileen for leaving such a thoughtful comment ❤
