When I was a little girl,
I wanted to be a ballerina.

an illustration from Little Ballerina, one of
my favorite books from childhood.

I felt like that little girl again,
dreaming of pink tulle tutus and satin toe shoes
when I saw the
at Seven Sisters

Does this sweet little ballerina look familiar?  It's the darling Betsy McCall,
the iconic paper doll from the 1950s and 60s.

Here's Betsy again, the hallmark of one of my favorite places in blogland,
M-and-m-bannerFINAL
Inspired by her grandmother Millicent's
recipe box, Malia has launched a new series,
aptly named Millicent & Malia
where she'll be sharing recipes from
the heirloom collection.

This week she shared Millicent's recipe for
Lemon Velvet Cake

As a little ballerina, one of my most
favorite desserts was fresh strawberries 
with sour cream and brown sugar.


Somewhere along the way
I forgot about this simple treat,
along with my aspirations to
take the stage as Clara or Odette

The recipe for

(And in my mind, I did a little pirouette of joy.)
