wow, thursday got here quick
happy day friends!
on the way up north this past weekend
i finished sewing and stuffing a pillow i made my mom for her birthday
that i thought i would share with you
mucho mucho grande
is something my mom and i say to one another following 'i love you' or instead of 'i love you'
she started saying it to me when i was six
so it has a special meaning to us
i decided to embroider it on the pillow
these pics don't do it justice
it's much cuter in real life
a few of you mentioned in this post that you would like the recipe for my banana cake
when you say you want something
i try my best to deliver
so here it is
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2c. butter (1 stick)
(mushed... i like to use three and the really ripe dark yucky looking ones)
cream together butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and bananas
add dry ingredients - gradually add milk
pour into cake pans
bake at 350 for 20 minutes
1c. brown sugar
1/4c. butter (1/2 stick)
cook the brown sugar, butter and milk on the stove
let melt and stir
bring it to a boil for 1 min.
take off heat
and spoon generously onto the cake
i usually double the carmel recipe...mmmmmm
let me know if you make it
and of course, what you think of it once you do!
enjoy your thursday my friends!
