On Sunday, my precious friend Dot, gave up her struggle to live. For the past 3 years and 4 months, I’ve had the privilege of knowing, and cooking for her. She was definitely a fellow foodie, with a very well equipped kitchen. See, I just can’t stop talking about food!
Dot definitely touched everyone who was fortunate enough to know her. She left a legacy of loving kindness, and in addition had a fabulous sense of humor. She was one of those people that have a magical “gravitational” pull. For her, life was always about family and friends, and the ranch.
When I was with Dot at the ranch, there was always something interesting going on with food. She was looking for new recipes to try, or I was developing new recipes for her. She also shared a number of her longstanding favorite recipes with me, and they are worth sharing with you, once more.
For the best ever coleslaw, especially if you’re like me, and not a coleslaw lover: Coleslaw.
For sauerkraut lovers: Sauerkraut and Bacon Casserole.
For everyone: Peach Cobbler.
Dot requested her family and friends to have a celebration of her life, and it will be this week. There are always people who remain a part of you. Dot is definitely one of those people in my life.
