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 organizing an event. I have learned so much about recipe development, food staging and photography. All creative outlets.

This Pineapple Bread Pudding is a little piece of Hawaiian sunshine.  This moist bread pudding is filled with chunks of fresh pineapple and drizzled with my Easy Caramel Sauce. When visiting Custer South Dakota this summer we went to a local burger place Black Hills Burger and Bun Co.
