Feature Friday- Brown Derby Grapefruit Cake

Today's "Feature Friday" recipe is from Kate Condit Zack .
Kate blogs at  Love to Cook...Love to Bake  where she shares her love of life, food and photography.   I love the look of this sweet little 6 inch cake she made for her friend's birthday!  Here's a little peek into Kate's life...

I've always loved being in the kitchen.  That's where the action is, where delicious smells come from, and where I go to create some really great stuff! My Grandma was my inspiration. She lived her life in Baltimore and she was ALWAYS in the kitchen.  I remember there was always soup before the meal, usually a steaming bowl of crab soup with a rich tomato broth and lots of vegetables. Her crab cakes were incredible, a recipe I use today, and undeniably the best. The first meal I made for my mom was macaroni and cheese from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook back when I was about 7 years old. I was very proud of it, and it was really good..a creamy white sauce combined with good old cheddar and shells sprinkled with toasted bread crumbs..yum. So off I went through life, cooking and baking, and came to realize that baking was the shizzy. I loved finding a great recipe and making it even better. I  attended the baking and pastry arts program at The California Culinary Academy. I was 47 years old and had no idea what I was in for.  I mastered the art of baking thanks to a dedicated and talented team of instructors. I did a gig in the basement of well known pastry kitchens and had a wonderful time working for a small caterer cooking with a great bunch of gals.

Feature Friday - Sweet Strawberry Cake

Sweet Strawberry Cake  at  Indigo's Sugar Spectrum

In an effort to expose you to one of the thousands of other food blogs out there, and also in the hope you won't tire of my endless babbling about cooking, food, recipes, my family, etc.,  I'm starting a new segment, chapter, thing.
Feature Friday. Every( well, not every, but some) Friday(s)  I'll pick a blog and recipe to share with you. Do you have any idea how many food blogs there are in blog land? Say no.
When Saveur sought nominations for "2011 Best Food Blog Awards" in several different categories, they received over FORTY THOUSAND entries. Four-oh thousand. Amazing. I'm sure we won't explore 40,000 over the course of Feature Friday, but we'll meet some fun new peeps. Like Jennifurla.
Here it is, The first installment of Feature Friday...

My name is Jennifer aka Jennifurla from Indigo's Sugar Spectrum.  I live in San Diego California with my husband and toddler daughter, Indigo.  My love of cooking and blogging started 1 1/2 years ago when I made a resolution to make more of my meals versus heating them in the microwave.  Fast forward to now and I have a new found love for baking, cooking, photography, and people pleasing with food!
At my blog I aim to really give new mothers an outlet to laugh it out with me.  I can't believe how funny motherhood is proving to be!  Through the good times and the bad a belly laugh is great medicine if you ask me!  This is what I hope to share in my world, Indigo's Sugar Spectrum. 
So if you love something sweet, something savory, and the sweet and unsavory about motherhood I think we should be pals.
