Mother’s Day Giveaway

Adoptive mother Faith, adoptee Anne, and birthmom Donna. (This is before the time digital cameras become commonplace; forgive the scratchy authenticity.)


Mother’s Day, as you might imagine, is a pretty big deal around here.  First, because the very heart of this blog is the family connections we nurture through food; and second, speaking for myself, is because I am doubly blessed to have had TWO mothers who are loving, generous and generally amazing people.  And of course, I became a mother myself  just four years ago.

Can you guess how we’re celebrating? Let us give you a subtle hint:

    One of my first memories with a mixer was when I was about 12 years old. I decided to surprise my mom with a cake. I got the old coal stove going and proceeded to mix up a cake. The cake was beautiful, but as we took our first bites, it was horrible, looking in the cupboard, there was the “Raleigh horse liniment”, right next to the Raleigh vanilla. You can guess which one I had grabbed. Needless to say it all went into the trash, even the dog wouldn’t eat it. I’ve been cooking now for 58 years of marriage and haven’t made a cake as bad as that was. I would love to win a Kitchen Aid. Thanks, DeNene
