MommieofKimmie is our Hostess of the month!!
Hey I am Angela aka Mommieofkimmie.
I started posting on sheknows when I was pregnant with my DD.
Was very shy at first so did not post much until I became pregnant with my DS.
Since I have enjoyed posting very much and have come out of my shell so to speak.
My favorite thing about the boards is all the wonderful ladies I get to meet and chat with I enjoy cooking because it is a stress reliever for me and I really enjoy cooking new recipies.
It makes me feel good when I try something new that I made and my family eats it and says its delicious or I take goodies over to my work and the guys over there love them.
I enjoy talking to everyone so stop on by to Chatters Cafe,Post Baby Shape Up Blinkies, Custom Signatures, Graphics, Snaggables or Points and Prizes and say hello!

Our recipe of the month came from one of our Hostess aria_dia
This ones really easy, can be done with any pound cake and is great to do with kids
Grilled Poundcake with Warmed Strawberries
(yeild: 4 servings)
2 cups strawberries, halved or quartered
1/4 cup sugar
4 slices poundcake (recipe follows)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons orange liqueur*
Combine berries and sugar in a medium saucepan.
Let stand at room temperature to allow juices to form.
Preaheat grill on high heat for a few minutes**. Places strawberries on one side to warm. Stir occasionally.
Beat egg, milk and liqueur in a small shallow dish. Dip each slice of cake into egg mixture, turning to coat both sides thoroughly. Place each slice on grill. Turn after 3 or 4 minutes, or when nicely browned, and brown second side.
Place each slice of cake on dessert plate and spoon berries on top. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired. Serve immediately.
* You can sub liqueur for a little orange juice
** I use an indoor grill, but a regular frying pan will also work
