Watching them enjoy something that I’ve created for them gives me so much joy. So I used the opportunity to bake him a big
chocolate cake. There were lots of children at the party, so I made sure that it was on the healthy side, getting much of its sweetness from bananas. He had a big piece all to himself and made sure to get lots of it on his face and in his hair. He looked so pleased with himself by the end.”Continue reading “How to Make Southern Food”
