So good with a cup of tea...

This afternoon I made a recipe that Jim and I really liked.  It is easy to make and tastes so good.  It is a very moist cake. I found the recipe at:  You can find the calories and nutritional information for this recipe, as well as other recipes on this site.

1 C. flour
1/4 C. sugar

1/2 t. baking soda

Hi Elaine! Oh how I pray that your husband is ok and I will be praying for the family also. Someone's life is now changed forever. How precious is our time with loved ones. I pray also that your heart is calmed!

This looks delicious, Elaine! I love to try new recipes, especially if they're sweets! My weakness!

Thanks for stopping by Life Lessons! It's always encouraging to know that these lessons are being learned by everyone - maybe not in the writing arena, but in lots of areas. Getting to the horticultural center WAS definitely worth it - they were setting up for a wedding and the flowers were truly beautiful! God bless!
