tx_southernbell #lomichelle had a tough weekend .... Really tough ... BUT God never ceases to amaze me .... He always speaks through others to speak to me .... #kelleeanddavid invited me to their celebration of Love this past weekend ... I was honored to be a guest as well as their Cake designer ... I was ready to throw in the towel ... But witnessing the love and union with God at their beautiful ceremony gave me the motivation I need .... #kelleeanddavid created a quote , #fightingforjoy #fightforjoy ! I'm sure they will use it throughout their marriage .... But I have now adapted that same quote in my life! Here is a clip from their first dance ....can't you just feel the ️??? I truly believe you should surround yourself with people who motivate you to be better ..... Since I plan to be a wife someday ... Kellee and David are perfect examples of love and when you put God first in your life ... The possibilities are endless !!! Congrats again !!!! #sweetthangs #sweetthangsbylo loves you ! @klmeventplus @klmevent 2w

tx_southernbell And it gets no better than this ... Great! Now I'm not even hungry ... But you know I had to plate it ...I bought these groceries on Tuesday so I had to use them
Maryland style #crabcakes with .. #Grilled #ribeye ...
For a medium rare/ medium steak you need 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch thick steaks Preheat grill to 425/450. I use an indoor grill that I cook from my patio bc I live in an apartment ... Indoor grills still produce a lot of smoke
Allow them to come to room temp ... (45 min)

Season generously with #unclechris #steakseasoning ... Pat the seasoning in ... Drizzle with vegetable oil NOT EVOO... You need a oil with high smoking point
#cookingwithlo
Make sure your grill is HOTT!!! Place on grill rotate after 2.5 min
Flip after 5 min
To mate after 2.5 min

For medium add 2 minutes to each step
For medium well add 3 minutes
For well done ... That's just sinful !
Remove from heat .. Add 1/2 tablespoon of butter or herb butter per steak ... Cover loosely with foil
Most important step: Let it rest for 10 min so it can reabsorb all the juices !!!! Plate and serve !

tx_southernbell A job is never finished ... If you are truly passionate about your craft .... You are always continuously working to perfect your gift ....
#sweetthangs guarantees a moist cake ... Every time no exceptions !!! But I do ponder why other companies cakes dry out too quickly or why why they are not tender to the crumb .... Since I also bake fresh I wanted to see how long a #sweetthangs cake will stay moist ...
This cake was baked on Sunday . I had cake tastings that day. After baking and cooking I left it on the counter wrapped in Saran Wrap ...that's it .... I had a slice of it on Wednesday ... Still tasted fresh and moist..
Well Today is FRIDAY ! And this cake is still delicious ... I will test it again on Sunday as well ... dry cake is a sin !!! And if you eat it ... Well #blessyourheart
