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.

5 Minute Maple Fudge

5 Minute Maple Fudge - Lady Behind The Curtain

Have you seen the new holiday frosting flavors like maple and brown sugar?  Yes please!  I love maple anything…especially maple bars.  So that got me to thinking that I should take that delicious maple and brown sugar frosting and make a melt in your mouth 5 Minute Maple Fudge! Besides I needed something with maple to add to my Buddy The Elf Christmas Party Table.  After all maple is one of the main food groups.  What?  You didn’t know that?  Yep, it is!  According to “Elf” anyway.  Print 5 Minute Maple Fudge Prep Time: 3 minutesCook Time: 2 minutesTotal Time: … Continue reading

I received product from Oriental Trading for this post.  This review is 100% mine own opinion. Create this fun Elf Snow Globe Find It Game for all ages. For the older kids create excitement by offering a prize for who can get the most points, add small items that are the same and only one that is different.  For example: add several snowmen but only one that has a hat. For the little ones add large items that are easy to find. Take away the boredom right before the holiday meal is served with this fun activity.  Have them at … Continue reading

Buddy the Elf Hat and Snowball Party Mix

Buddy The Elf Hat and Snowball Party Mix - Lady Behind The Curtain

Sweet and salty at it’s best!  This Buddy the Elf Hat and Snowball Party Mix is perfect to give out as a party favor or serve at your holiday party. I think I forgot to mention that it’s VERY addictive! Of course serving this mix in Elf Boot Shaped Bags doesn’t hurt either.  For the salty portion of the mix I used Bugles corn chips. Push skewers into a piece of Styrofoam (this will be used later to dry your candy dipped Bugles). Melt some green candy melts in a medium microwave safe bowl. Dip as much of the Bugles … Continue reading
