My neighbor is a smart and funny Southern woman, a successful writer of romantic and teen fiction, a devoted wife, mother and friend, and a wonderful hostess. She also makes the best pound cake I’ve ever eaten.
Christie recently served her homemade sour cream pound cake at the end of a lively dinner party, and I fell in love. I was transported back in time to long, lazy summer days when the sun lingers until the first fireflies light up and kids sneak second and third portions of rich, lovingly made desserts while the grownups sit around and solve all the world’s problems. That pound cake was the past on a plate, a happy history of pure, rich flavors that make you feel like all is right with the world.
So of course I had to write a haiku about it.
