lady bird johnson cake, recipe courtesy of @vintage_confections .
after seeing this cake on Lauren’s feed, earlier in the week, i absolutely HAD to make it. this chocolate cake has the perfect amount of fluffiness. the frosting is quick, easy to make and...a little too delicious 😉 i highly, highly encourage you to grab the recipe over on Lauren’s feed. better, yet, give her a follow for all the nostalgic desserts. thank you for sharing your recipe, Lauren! .
my thoughts on moving forward: this account has always been a way for me to share my love of food, photography, as well as incorporating the flavors and spices from all over the world into classic american recipes. it’s been my experience that when you break bread with someone, you form a connection and thus a dialogue. .
it is with this thought in mind, that i will begin to post new recipes next week. i will also be highlighting recipes from BIPOC each month. it’s important to me to have their recipes, voices and stories in my feed. it’s equally important to me to pass those voices along to you. .
as we move beyond this moment, into a sustained movement, it is so important that we continue the work. this isn’t always obvious online. some of the most important conversations and advocacy happen in real life. away from these curated squares. i encourage you to find the ways you can carry this movement forward. i’m focusing my efforts around addressing disparities in education and food. both of these issues have long been in my heart. these resources will be highlighted in my stories. any information I find will live in my highlights under, “amplify.” we must become the change. - 13 minutes ago
