Sorry, no flan here. I'm sure you can find many great write-ups from the wonderful Tuesdays with Dorie group--check out the blogroll here. I had decided last week that I was going to sit this one out. I'm just not a big fan of custardy things. And as it turns out, it just wasn't meant for me to participate this week.
I'm writing this post from Pennsylvania, rather than my usual Central Texas. My mom died this past Friday, and the funeral is Tuesday morning.
It's been a stressful few days, but it's been good to be here with family. One of the things my sisters and I did was look through my mom's recipe box. It's interesting to see how recipes evolve over time. My mom is definitely the one who fostered my love of cooking and baking. As my skills developed, it became rare for me to have to call her up to ask for cooking advice. It's hard to believe that I'll never be able to do that again.
