My photo diary for 5/6 - 5/12.
I've been thinking of doing a blog post series of all of the vegetarian places my husband and I eat at here in Miami. There are actually a ton of places on South Beach. Lots of fresh juice too. What do you think?
My parents, from Michigan, were recently here for a week. So I was able to give my Mom an early Mother's Day gift.
Lindsay over at Small Home Design so kindly offered me a complementary tea towel with a recipe printed on it.
I thought it would be a perfect gift for my Mom to have one of Grandma's recipes printed. Grandma passed away June 26, 2009. And the funeral was the last time that I saw my parents. So giving her this gift was very special.
I had to ask my mom to mail me some of Grandma's recipes.
In the bunch was a recipe in Grandma's handwriting with her signature. The recipe is the Scripture Cake.
Grandma went to church every Sunday. She was a decon's wife and sang in the women's choir. The Scripture Cake was meant as a way to teach young girls baking and Bible verses. You have to read the passages of the Bible in order to get the ingredients to make the cake.
My mom LOVED it! She wants to frame it and get Grandpa one too.
Thank you so much Lindsay! The tea towel came out perfect!
Here is the Scripture Cake recipe if you want to try your hand at making it.

This is a sponsored post. My opinions are my own.
Michelle Mansfield, Island House owner, was so kindly to find me on Etsy and ask me if I'd like to have my fizzles in her store. She said, "I envision a store filled with original hand made pieces which would be displayed in the most professional and inviting setting." Island House is a a renovated 1870s building that is casual yet modern place with interiors, furnishings, fine gifts. So I said, "of course!"
Thank you Michelle for working with me. Congratulations on your grand store opening!
