My Grandma’s 90th Birthday!

I know I’ve been away for awhile, but a girl’s gotta do a little soul searching and focusing sometimes. Well, I’m back and just in time to bring you a few pictures from my grandma’s 90th birthday party! I am so proud of her, she is in such great shape and has an amazing quality of life, turning 90 was truly a celebration. We put on the RITZ! There were all her favorites: grilled steak, cucumber salad, corn on the cob… and I attempted her all time favorite, 5-Day Coconut Cake. It turned out so-so if we are being honest and as always we are! So, I’m going to attempt it again before I post the recipe. This must be a very old school classic because I was hardpressed to find a recipe for it, even online. The trick is that it sits in the fridge for 5-Days soaking up the coconutty frosting. It’s supposed to be moist and rich. Mine was a little dense and rich which I suspect came from the gluten-free quinoa flour. Next time I will make it with regular flour.ImageMy beautiful and inspirational grandma!
