My name is Felina and I am the cake recipe princess. My passions are cooking & baking. My Gran Peg and my Great Gran Virginia are my heroines and have taught me so much about food & culture.
My gran has been making up meals for the elderly and homeless charities for 40 years. She also ran a catering business in her younger years and loves to discuss food in basic terms. She talks to me about nutrition, quality ingredients and the processes involved in cooking and baking. One of her favorite sayings is " When you bake it yourself you know how much sugar there is in the recipe."
Gran has 1000's of recipes in her 3x5 catalogues and my mother would photograph her dishes. Gran often writes out the recipes in metric measurements as she has believed that America would some day be metric. She has believed this since the 1960's. Sorry Gran, I don’t think it will ever happen.
