  • A great dessert to serve at Thanksgiving dinner

    Bob and I had the pleasure of hosting our dear friends from Virginia this past weekend.  We were a respite stop for them, since Brenda just lost her mother of 93 years, a few days before.  Bob and I had made the trip to Anderson, Ind., my hometown, to pay our respects.

    While we were there, she asked if they could stay with us on their way home because she needed some relaxation. What a wonderful compliment and what a special pleasure to provide some precious relaxation for them.
