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.

Root Beer Float Cupcakes

Reminiscent of days gone by when getting a root beer float on a Sunday evening was....well.....what you did.

Root Beer Float Cupcakes:  Reminiscent of days gone by when getting a root beer float on a Sunday evening was….well…..what you did. These Root Beer Float Cupcakes are true to their name.  There is no mistaking this for another flavor.  They are DELICIOUS!!!  I made these cupcakes for my Church’s Rodeo Fest and had many people comment on how good they were.  This would be a fun cupcake to serve at a 50′s party, a soda shop theme party (just add a cut straw),rodeo theme party or a backyard barbecue!  FUN! Add a “kick” of fun and serve your guests an ice cold shot of root beer on top of their cupcake.  … Continue reading

Picnic Punch

Grape juice, limeade and orange juice come together with lemon lime soda to make the perfect take along punch.

Picnic Punch:  Grape juice, limeade and orange juice come together with lemon lime soda to make the perfect take along punch. Picnics….everything tastes better at a picnic.  Friends and family gathering together….blankets spread on the ground and the perfect menu along with the best punch!  I actually made this Picnic Punch last week for a Mexican themed dinner (the pictures you see below).  I thought with the addition of grape juice it would do fine as a “mock” sangria and I was right!  I made it again this weekend to take to a picnic.  I poured it into individual mason … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream:  A rich creamy ice cream made with peanut butter and chunks of peanut butter cups.  The perfect ending to a great meal. If you are a peanut butter junkie like me than you are going to love this ice cream.  Rich, and packed with peanut butter.  It’s perfect on its own but why not pump it up a bit with fudge brownies.  We all know chocolate and peanut butter were made for each other.  So I can imagine a scoop of this Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream sitting on a big brownie is heaven on … Continue reading

Ice Cream Cone Cake:  A cake completely made from store bought ice cream with layers of butter crisps and a touch of salt on the caramel.  An impressive no bake dessert.
