My friend and our contributor, Jerri, sent me this note on Facebook on a day she knew I was stressed – “Try the shortcake recipe I just posted, slather with strawberries and whipped cream....I think that is pretty close to a hug.”

“This is from the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook that Mom gave me when we got married. It makes a great Shortcake for Strawberry Season....Ryan called yesterday asking for the recipe so I thought I would share it with you! Easy and Fast! Perfect!”

Busy Day Cake - great name!

I grew up on that cookbook – my Mom had also received it when SHE got married. Memories AND a hug – you’re a good friend, Jerri.
