LIFE update


Sometimes it is just nice to show you what I've been up to. The weekend of March 17-19 ... it was a quiet & calm March weekend. The hubs and I jumped in the car and went to new kayakin' stop here in Virginia ... got a few rowin' moments in before a thunderstorm popped up. Rumbling away, we decided, we best be getting our butt out of the water, ASAP!! Wild how those thunderstorms come out of nowhere!! It was a gorgeous day, only took my Iphone. 



I made a homemade Angel Food cake. Have you ever had to get 12 egg whites? ... separating eggs is not an easy task. Ever needed cake flour before? Take a cup of all purpose flour, take out 2 TBS of that flour, put back in 2 TBS of corn starch. Simple as that!! NEAT, HUH??! Did you know that it take 30 mins, 2 have something become "room temperature"? I really did learn a whole bunch from this homemade baking recipe. SO FUN, not sure I will be  making another angel food cake a while ...but fun all the same. You see an angel food cake has to be inverted to cool ... no bottle that we have in the house is the right size to fit within my pan. So I got the coffee percolator, which was the right size, then to hold down the percolator I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. My brother did ask me, WHY DIDN'T U USE WATER N THE PERCOLATOR? Honestly, I didn't think that way? My Dad ask me, you know the cake is not flat, I didn't think about that either? Does a cake have to be flat to cool? No clue??! It was delicious, by the way, with fresh strawberries and everything. YUMMY GOOD!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy your day! Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Next time you make one cut it across in half..layer it with black raspberry ice cream (or the ice cream of your choice) and freeze it..Yummy

A woman has to be inventive now and then Beth. lol The angel food cake sounds good but 12 egg whites?? wow. That's a lot of separating.

Homemade Angel Food Cake,YUMMY! My Mom used to make it that way all the time, but that was when we had chickens on the farm and more eggs than we could use.It is the best.

My mother used to make angel food cake, and then break it up and put it into a strawberry pudding.

Had to laugh about putting water in the percolator...but it does sound delicious.
What a lovely cake (and innovative way to cool it)...I've never made an angel food cake. I didn't know you can remove 2 T of flour and replace with 2 T corn starch to make cake flour!

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…
