2016 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Nostalgia

2016 WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
~Nostalgia~

What kinds of experiences stir emotions for the past within you?

Baking a cake always makes me feel nostalgic and always makes me miss my Mom.
My Mom was one of the best cook and bakers that I’ve ever known. I’ve so many fond memories of her culinary creations.
Whenever Mom would put a cake in the oven, she’d warn us not to walk heavy, jump, stomp or run through the house because it would make the cake fall.
With a smile in my heart for Mom, I usually ask my family to walk lightly when I have a cake in the oven.

 Wishing you all sweet nostalgic thoughts
& fun with the WP photo challenge!

*Just a note
I’m guessing a store-bought box cake mix wouldn’t be as apt too fall because they’re so mathematically engineered for maximum results.
I suppose a cake made from scratch with plain flour, baking soda or baking powder might have a bigger chance of falling.

This week, let’s keep our angles sharp and heart rate fast.

This is a crop from a photo showing the Sun at the edge of a passing storm.

Don’t mind the bugs and the dirt, I took this photo with a mobile phone held up to our car’s front windshield. It was such an amazing showy sky that I couldn’t resist.

I thought I’d also post another crop from the original that shows some amazing clouds above the edge of the storm.9-14-2016-2

1-iccrm-breadI think, Making ‘Ice Cream Bread’ is fun.
It has only 2 ingredients: self rising flour & melted ice cream.

It’s simple to do and it taste good. 🙂2-iccrm-bread

*’Ice Cream Bread’ can be made by my ‘Boiled Custard Bread’ recipe.
Use melted ice cream instead of boiled custard.
Add flour a little at a time to the melted ice cream until the batter is a creamy consistency.
If you get the batter too thick, thin it with a little bit of water.
