Landon has always enjoyed helping me in the kitchen and this summer, Kendall got in on the act as well. Of course, sweets are the choice food group for these two. With cupcakes being so popular now, Kendall and I have been baking them quite often.
In addition to the red velvet cupcakes, I am making a Whipping Cream Pound Cake to serve with strawberries and whipped cream. Of course, hot dogs and hamburgers will be on the menu as well!! My sister, Leta, told me that her husband strongly suggested that some homemade vanilla ice cream was in order over in Chatsworth to celebrate Independence Day! We all have our special foods that just say Summer and home made ice cream is one of them. I have many fond memories of evenings that included churning the ice cream with cousins taking turns at the crank. When it was done, Mother would spoon it into cups and glasses that she had placed in the freezer to make them frosty. Good Times!
Here's to a Fabulous 4th!!
