Angel Fruit Trifle
I am a chemo angel and I work with children and adults who are going through chemo and radiation. My motto is: Cooking feeds the soul when the spirit is down. I do a lot of baking and cooking and when I do, I pray while mixing ingredients together and when everything is completed. I give thanks that when someone else is hurting, I can do this.
