a tribute

The only things I knew for sure about Sher of What Did You Eat were that she created masterful dishes, loved cats, and wrote very well. However, that lack of familiarity didn't stop the tears from streaming down my face upon hearing about her untimely death.


As a tribute to Sher, Glenna from A Fridge Full of Food and Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen have encouraged bloggers to post a recipe from Sher's archives as a memorial for her. I knew in an instant that I wanted to participate.

My once-delicious coffee cake was bordering on stale and inedible, and Sher's wonderful butterscotch sauce and a little whipped cream quickly brought it back to good.

There's no doubt that Sher will be missed. May she rest in peace and may those who loved her be comforted.

What a creative and delicious use of Sher's recipe! She would be proud, for sure! I thought about this one too.

As I am relatively new to the food blog world, I had yet to discover Sherry's blog. I checked it out now and am sad I didn't discover it sooner. Your creation looks delicious Grace, a tribute I'm sure would have made the chef quite happy.

Grace - you're a very kind soul and deserve all the best that life has to offer. Although I didn't know her, Sher's death at such a young age, with so much to live for is a cause for real sadness. You honour her with your tribute.

Unfortunately, I only just discovered Sher's blog, she seemed like a wonderful person. I'll certainly be going through her archives to find other gems like this butterscotch sauce, it sounds delicious. Lovely post Grace. :)
