Maya Angelou was on Martha Stewart today. (I left the program on because she was the guest. I normally don't watch it.) I always come away from watching/listening to Maya Angelou with a more peaceful feeling in my heart.
Martha was cooking a cake using one of the recipes in Ms. Angelou's cookbook. I think the book has been out for a while, so I'm thinking this is more of a reminder than a look-what-I-discovered! thingy.
Besides the recipes, Ms Angelou shares some of her history and experiences relating to the recipes. That's what intrigues me.... since I'm not a cook in the true sense of the word. (I'm a cook in the 'survival' sense.) She shared a story for the carmel cake recipe that brought tears to my eyes. Sniff.
The book also has a great picture of Ms Angelou on the cover, too.
