Well, the Fourth of July came and went. Yah fireworks! I made some cookies for a get together (see picture) and also made strawberry blueberry shortcakes. I used a recipe called Lulu cake and baked them individually in large cupcake pans. (See picture). Tooooo good! It’s great to have fresh fruit this time of year. Which brings me to blackberries! It brings thoughts of long sleeves and long pants, ouch! But aren’t they delicious in cobblers? Share your different additions you use in your cobblers, I’d love to hear them.
I love summertime! I always enjoyed June bugs and fireflies. There is a spot in me that wants to be five again. You know, Easy Bake oven, five years old. Wasn’t it amazing to watch that lightbulb (and watch and watch) to produce a tiny layer cake with homemade fudge frosting. I would beg my mama to let me make a whole batch of icing, even though I only used a small amount for the cake. After all, a girl needs to lick the bowl! Everyone likes a sugar rush. Hope it made you smile. Love ya, mean it, Elizabeth
