This blog... a compilation of my favorite recipes. They have been collected over several years found in various places: the internet, magazines, and cookbooks to name a few. These recipes are meals that I consider to "feed more than your body". These are meals that I hope nurish the heart and soul of those who eat them. I hope that when you have cleaned your plate, you feel like you have taken part in more than just a meal-that you have taken part in something bigger than yourself and food. Whether it is culture, your local place of living, or the life of the plant or those who share this planet, I hope these meals help your family-and mine-to appreciate that we are more than just beings consuming food; we are all connected. And more than that, I hope that these meals help you remember how fortunate you are and that "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.".

Simplest Loaf Cake

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup cooking oil (such as vegetable or canola)

Oven at 350. Generously butter a loaf pan. In a bowl combine dry ingredients (not sugar). In another bowl beat eggs, sugar, sour cream and vanilla together until well blended. Add the dry ingredients an stir until smooth. Finally pour in the oil and stir in smoothly until thoroughly folded into batter. Pour into loaf pan and bake 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 5 minutes then remove from pan, cooling completely.

**This is the best cake I have ever had to serve with coffee. If you have a guest over and want to serve something simple and tasty, this is it.
**You may want to use parchment paper on the bottom of your loaf pan to assure it comes out.
