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.

German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream

German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream - Lady Behind The Curtain

SUMMER VACATION!  My mom and dad came to visit this summer.  My dad has two favorite desserts.  German chocolate cake and ice cream.  So it made total sense for me to combine the two to make this outstanding German Chocolate Cake Ice Cream. I first started with an easy to make vanilla ice cream base.  I then added one tub a coconut frosting (the kind used to frost German chocolate cake) and added brownie bits. Start with a store bought brownie mix, make as directed.  Once cool, cut into small pieces.  Mix some in at the beginning and some at … Continue reading

Peanut Butter and Jelly Puppy Chow - Lady Behind The Curtain

It’s BACK TO SCHOOL time and you know what that means!  WooHoo…the kids will be gone for 7 hours!!!  Wait no, what I meant to say is….I’m going to miss my kids while their at school.    But seriously with the expense of supplies, backpacks, and clothes, going back to school can get expensive VERY fast.  You know, when I was in school there was no such thing as a “school supplies list”.  We just showed up with a pencil and a notebook (remember PeeChee folders?).  Oh, and I should mention we didn’t have backpacks.  Whoops…Okay, so now you know … Continue reading

Chicken, Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Chicken, Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich - Lady Behind The Curtain

This Chicken, Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich is more like a chicken salad but better!  With a mixture of honey mustard, celery, chopped pear and cranberries, a generous portion of brie all topped with a crunchy buttered roll. I served this sandwich with my Chicken Noodle Soup.  My husband and I split the sandwich.  You can also choose to have the whole thing for lunch.  I love…love…love the combinations in this Chicken, Pear and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Lighten up the sandwich by hallowing out the center of the roll. Then stuff it with all that good chicken filling. … Continue reading
