Don't you just love memories. Especially memories that are conjured up by food.

My Nanny made the best cakes.  My favorite was her chocolate cake.  On the 4th of July, all of my family would come to our home on the lake & celebrate.  I didn't want my cake after we ate, I wanted it after I swam.  The best thing in the world that day was knowing that Nanny hid a piece of cake away for me.  A big glass of cold milk & Nanny's chocolate Cake.

I've been missing her a lot these last few days.  So for the 4th of July, I decided to make her cake & wait until after we swim in the pool.  Knowing that "her" cake will be waiting for me makes it seem like she's right here with me.

I wish you could taste it.
