About Sheryl

I have been organizing BIG church events for over 25 years. From Thanksgiving dinners, Vacation Bible School, Fall Festivals, Easter Brunch and Rodeo Fest. I think I’ve done it all and loved every minute of it. So I decided to bring some of that experience to Lady Behind The Curtain. Of course writing a blog is way different then orangaizing an event. I have learned so much about recipe development, food staging and photography. All creative outlets.

Poached Fruit Topping

Poached Fruit Topping - Lady Behind The Curtain

Poached Fruit Topping, a combination of dried fruit poached in a sugar free cranberry juice.  The perfect way to end a meal. You don’t have to wait for your favorite fruit to be in season to make this wonderful Poached Fruit Topping.  I used dried fruit, poached it in sugar free cranberry juice with orange rind strips and a cinnamon stick.  Serve it warm over Frozen Vanilla Yogurt and toasted almond slivers for a light dessert!  For a richer option serve it over my Chocolate Pound Cake.

I love that once the cookie sits on top of the cheesecake for awhile it absorbs some of the moisture from the cheesecake and becomes one with the cheesecake.  Plus the cookie on top is made using … Continue reading

Light Sauteed Cabbage and Apples

Light Sauteed Cabbage and Apples - Lady Behind The Curtain

If you’re looking for something new to serve as a side dish this Light Sauteed Cabbage and Apples is perfect!  I was getting so tired of the same old vegetable side dish so I decided to try something new.  I’ve always loved sauteed cabbage.  Of course that was when I “sauteed” (fried) it in bacon drippings.  HA!  Yep, that’s some good eats or OKIE FOOD!  Awww….those were the days when I didn’t have to worry about eating bacon. By adding apple cider, mustard and a splash of vinegar I’ve created a flavorful dish without adding tons of calories.  Making sauteed … Continue reading
