In a family cookbook that my great grandmother made for her family many years ago, I ran across this Strawberry Dream Cake. Here was the caption from a great aunt, “I first got this recipe after writing to Rosalyn Carter and asking for her favorite recipe. Rosalyn is the wife of former US President, Jimmie Carter”.
I would like to ask more questions, like if it was really that easy years ago to write the First Lady and ask her favorite recipe. Or if she still had the letter it came in.
I may not get my answers, but it just shows that there is always a good story to go along with a good recipe!
