On my March 2020 episode, I invited Molly Reed Grayson to join me on the show to teach us how to make her delicious Lemon Raspberry Skillet Cake Recipe.

I’ve known Molly for years (we actually met in a Bible study comprised of really powerful women), but we hadn’t seen each other in a long time. But after I watched her “Sunday Bakes” on Instagram, I knew we had to reunite.

Not only is Molly a talented singer and songwriter, she’s married and a soon-to-be mother of 3.
