This newsletter was written prior to Election Day.  Thank you for voting and participating in our democracy.  Here is a video and recipe for ‘Election Day’ cake, which according to the New England Historical Society was a recipe brought from England by the Puritans, but perhaps became a tradition in the 1700’s when cake was served to vote counters as they worked through the night to tally ballots.  This cake is also a good starter cake for getting you in the holiday mood, as it is fruit-cake-lite.  Enjoy!
