Apple Raisin Pecan Pound Cake In memory of Caroline Angerome My mother was an exceptional cook. Food was her way of bringing the family together. Peppers were always frying on the stove ‘just in case’ someone stopped by for a visit. ‘You can do anything with fried peppers,’ she’d say. ‘Peppers and eggs, sausage and peppers, chicken scallopini.’ And a hot pot of fresh perked coffee was a treat with any of her special desserts, like this one.
