Shannon Loftin At LaBelle's Flora And Ella's
Book Signing At Flora and Ella's
LABELLE, FL -- On Saturday, November 28th, Shannon Paul Loftin will have a book signing at Flora and Ella's restaurant in downtown LaBelle from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Shannon writes "We had just finished another wonderful dinner; every dinner my grandmother prepared was wonderful. She sat in her chair with her legs and her arms crossed, looking as if she was thinking very seriously about something, and she wasdessert."
''Too often in life we become so focused on material things that we lose sight of the true gifts that are given to us.''
Just a Touch is a collection of the 'gifts' she received from her grandmother, representing stories, family traditions, and memories her family have shared for years.
For example, the ''coconut cake recipe is something her grandmother would make every year for Thanksgiving, and she would make it two days before Thanksgiving to be sure it was good and moist.''
BA brought Shannon a coconut cake when she went to visit her in Miami, holding it on her lap the entire train ride. The coconut cake became more popular throughout the years.
Loftin graduated from LaBelle High School class in 1997 and is the Granddaughter of Bob and Margaret Paul, and daughter of Bryan Paul. Shannon's book is Just a Touch, Recipes from B.A.'s Kitchen.
