I only wish that sentence was the beginning of a steamy love story with an amour, but alas, it is not. It does, however, pertain to Easy 7-Up Coffee Cake, and that’s as tantalizing as this story gets.

Simply SatedHotel Frederick is a favorite retreat for my husband and me. It is located in Boonville, a Missouri town situated near the Katy Trail on the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River. It was built in 1905 at a cost of $40,000. After years of neglect and detours of duty from its original purpose, it was brought back to life thanks to new ownership and a four million dollar restoration. It is a museum, of sorts, full of gorgeous antiques and interesting history.
