Having Your Cake and Eating It Too

Yesterday AD came home with a package pick-up card from the post office. He doesn't usually get to the post office before the office part closes for the day.

I knew what was was waiting for pick-up and made sure I got to the post office to pick up the package.

It was the cookbook I won in Shelley's giveaway last week.

There are 6 different sections of cake recipes. This is the first section I wanted to check out.

So many wonderful recipes like Buttermilk Cake and

Mississippi Mud Cake and

Strawberry Shortcake! Oh, my! I can't wait until strawberries are in season here.

I know I can buy strawberries at the store right now but when you can get them fresh - like I said - Oh, my!

Then there's a section called Afternoon Tea and it has a recipe for Jelly Roll with Lemon Cream. Does that not sound scrumptious?!?

There's even a section of Healthy and Special Diet cakes. Several of them are gluten-free.

Ok, so now I need to go check out the pantry and see what kind of cake I can make first but not before I say. . .

. . . Thanks bunches for the cookbook, Shelley. You rock!
