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!

I am able and willing? You are probably super busy, dealing with other silliness going on. I am probably doing okay ... compared to others. I get it ... I'll keep my ears open. Promise! Tell all my loved ones hi, I miss them. Lately, I have been really miss my Grandma, and my Great Aunt. Hope they are treating u good??! Life is good. Bring Spri…

Kayaking it

We really lucked out to go kayaking on this trip while we were staying at Davy Crockett State Park, TN. So you know ... I have yet to fall out of my kayak .... KNOCK ON WOOD ... knock on your head ...whatever!! My hubby this kayaking trip slipped once going into this kayak right off the bat and then the kayaking completely flipped over ...it was a real COLD adventure ...fun but so so cold. & our camping friends ...who don't go kayaking often were wanting to help the hubby but I had it under control ...I had water come up and over the kayak ... I am guessing that would be a good reason to have a skirt on your kayak. Wonder if I could do that on my kind of kayak? Not sure ...but it was so so cold. We made it back all in one piece. 
Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you did enjoy your visit. Thank you for your comments and friendship. ENJOY YOUR DAY!! Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( :

So many bikes, so many unique ones to see and just drool over. Are you a bike fan? If you can remember your childhood, what was the must have bike of that year, I bet it is here in mint condition. So fun!! Harley Davidson made bikes, not just Harleys??! Who knew? So many creators, just so so much history. Are you a history buff, I don't remember all these dates, maybe you could or can? Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care!!! Beth ( ;
