I remember when series:7 up cakes Birda Mae use to make

 I got this image from here
I got this idea fromBeyond Blogging Class  I want to write the journaling portion of my scrapbook/recipe album
I am making for my grandmother who passed away almost 2 years ago. My grandmother was awesome in so many ways she was down to earth, loving , and kind to name a few things.  She is known  for her cooking in our family. I would even go so far as to say that  the way you knew she was loved was through her cooking.  However there was one dessert  I began to hate with a passion.  That was the dreaded 7up cake. Don't
get me wrong the cake itself was a culinary delight, but I was the one who had to walk in 90o weather to  the  store up the street from where we  lived to get it.
I know it sounds mean but I use to wish she would buy a six pack of 7up rather than have me go almost every other day(sometimes, not every week)
to get one can of 7up.  I remember I couldn't wait to go to college so I wouldn't  have to do that anymore.
Life is funny though because it was only a couple of years after that I began to really miss her 7up pound cakes!
Grama(Birda Mae) we love you and miss you so much .The world lost some of it's sparkle  when you passed
away but you will never be forgotten.

Love this story!!! What a great idea of a cook/scrapbook. There is always someone who is known for cooking in a family and its awesome that you are journaling the stories that go with some of these/ What a special book this will be to you children and thier children :):) THat is so funny about buying the one can of 7up.....Im betting she grew up in a time where they only bought what they needed and were thrifty.

Yeah I think my grandma was a kid in
the Great Depression so I think that is the way her generation thought about spending money in general I am glad you like the story

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
