A Sweet Treat



Lucky us.  The other day, MacGyver husband came home with a big box of locally grown strawberries.   The strawberries are long gone, but I still wanted to share a piece of homemade poundcake with you!

Have any of you seen Martha Stewart's new show, Martha Bakes?  It is a must see for anyone who enjoys baking!  Anyway, she featured this poundcake recipe on her show, and I knew right away that it would be delicious with the fresh strawberries. Be forewarned, this recipe produces a huge cake, but it is quite tasty!

Speaking of Martha, during a conversation with my mom the other day, the question came up "Where would we be without Martha?"  As I was pondering the answer, I realized that my home is filled with many Martha Stewart items, such as plates, books,magazines, recipes, towels, crafting tools, and much more... which made me consider that perhaps I should start a weekly post of "Where Would I Be Without Martha?".  She is quite an amazing woman, don't you think?

  1. She is indeed!, but I have to gather ideas from her, and make them work with what there's available locally, as we do not have anything from her around this land. Pity. She does have some very interesting tools, supplies, and beautiful pieces. Oh well...let's look at the bright side: I would be penny-less if there was a Martha Stewart in Guatemala! :o)
    Looking forward to the "Where would I be without Martha?" posts! Great idea!
    have a lovely day.

  7. Heather,
    That cake looks soooo good! I think Martha started it all, She was a pioneer! Thank goodness I got my green jadite dishes before her show started and everyone saw hers which made the price sky rocket!
