I am still very passionate about cooking and baking. My husband says he rarely gets the same thing twice, and he so appreciates all the different recipes I continue to make. My son has moved back from Texas (insert happy mom face, here) -- and while he doesn't live with us any longer, he still comes to visit and eat mom's home cooking. My heart is full, and they are the main reason that I am always trying out new recipes. It's my love language, for sure.
Definitely cake. One of my very favorite classic cakes is a homemade Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I don't make it very often, but when I do-- I love the way the pineapple slices become caramelized from the brown sugar and butter mixture. Maraschino cherries are another guilty pleasure. They're just a pretty color, and have a slight flavor of almond (another one of my favorite flavors.) Red Dye 40 doesn't scare me, because I don't eat these every single day. Besides, let's face it-- cake isn't a health food. It's just a sugary dessert that makes my taste buds very happy.
