Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Coffee Cake - you choose the flavor

I make this coffee cake with whatever Jam I have on hand.  This time, I made it with blueberry lime jam (see recipe from July 3).  For the topping, you can toast coconut or chop whatever nut you like.  Mix it up - it can be different every time you make it.
