Would you just LOOK at this face??!! I'm the luckiest grandmother EVER! My grandson, Jonas, turned 2 in May and is our source for laughter and entertainment. He loves EVERYTHING and ANYTHING with wheels!! My daughter is bringing him over tonight for our weekly "dinner at mom's". Jeremy is taking classes and doing homework at night so this gives him some "quiet" study time and gives us some "FUN" time with my daughter and grandson.

There is NOTHING I've had lately that is as good as this luscious cake. Just enough tart and sweet and it literally melts in your mouth. I found this recipe and shared it with my friend, Joyce, who brought it to potluck party last night. All I can say is WOW !!
Just go to bettycrocker.com website and search for Key Lime Poke Cake. You won't be disappointed. GREAT summer dessert! ENJOY!!

The photo on this page is that of my Grandma Ellie and my mom, Pearl, taken back around 1950. The recipe is one my grandma would always bring to our family picnics, which we had several of every summer. My grandma came over from Denmark by herself when she was just a young girl and had lost her parents. My sister, Gloria, has been able to find both a photo of the boat she came over on as well as the manifest she signed at Ellis Island. Simply amazes me how someone so young could make such a trip. I sure do miss her, but have fond memories of her teaching me how to crochet AND how to play poker.

Here's a page from that same family cookbook. This photo is my sister, Gloria, and her daughter, Trisha. Gloria makes this tater tot casserole often ... as in, A LOT. But it is crowd pleasing and easy to make AND a family favorite. Note: Trisha recently gave birth to her first daughter, Avlyn Pearl! (congrats Trish and hubby Craig!)

Doesn't this pic just make you want to smile out loud? Although I probably wouldn't advise driving with your eyes shut! But we'll work on that. This is my grandson, Jonas. He got this nifty little mini cooper for his 2nd birthday in May. His face shows his uninhibited GLEE during his very first driving experience.
