March Madness ? ? ?

 Yesterday I got the itch to make my first ever pound cake.  When I was at my college friend's house she served this recipe and it was so good I decided to try making it.
 The lady on the left, my mother-in-love, is a renowned cake maker so I have never needed to do much in the way of making cakes.
We celebrated my son-in-love's birthday with his favorite cake.....Better Than Sex.  The grandies were quite scandalized by the name.

Here is my latest list of book suggestions:

The Wedding Dress by Virginia Ellis.... a Civil War novel.

The Pastor by Eugene Peterson  an autobiography by the man who wrote The Message and was a pastor for 27 years.

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson... Fiction set in modern day England.

A Passion for Souls by Lyle Dorsett, Biography of  D. L. Moody

Pound cake happens to be one of my specialties. I made one for George and his brother for their birthdays last week.

Who made the Better-Than-*** cake? Really! Some people are so scandalous! LOL

I am currently just reading the Bible. Was disappointed with a book I got from the library that I've been waiting forever to read. I gave up when it still stunk after 53 pages!
