One of the first things I did when I got to the old farm was make our Grandma Faye's apple cake.
Standing in her kitchen, making her signature cake, just really gave me a great feeling. Grandma Faye has been gone for years and I'm in my own kitchen now. But we were recently reminded of her. So I made her special cake last nite and oh is it heaven. And its whats for breakfast.
