Our season of celebrations actually started on Good Friday this year with my parents’ 67th wedding anniversary. Since it was on Good Friday, we decided to celebrate on Easter Sunday instead with German cuisine. I made a black forest cake that I tried once before and was a little disappointing. I tweaked the recipe a little and this time it was fantastic. A few days before, we received 2 fresh pineapples from the organic fruit subscription that my mom gets every month from my brother. Just as we finished the black forest cake, my brother and I decided we needed to make a fresh pineapple upside down cake. I had to tweak the recipe a bit and it turned out amazing. Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday and his favorite is angel food cake. My mom used to make it for him all the time, but was unable to get it to rise properly in the high altitude. I tried a couple of times as well, but had the same issue, so we had kind of gave up on it. But, we were almost out of pineapple upside down cake and my dad requested angel food cake, so I was determined to make it work. I tweaked the old tried and true recipe, used some directions from another recipe, and consulted my mom along the way. The cake came out tall and firm. It was incredible. I can’t wait to see what next week brings.
I Found God today in the ability to make delicious food.
