Utterly Delicious Pecan Pie Recipe 👍

I’m not a fan of pecans, so I switched the

for 

Albanese Candy-Fancy Cashews

Why?
Pecan I said so! 😂 

And it did not disappoint. Utterly. Delicious. #Indeed

Love Is In the Air ~ John Paul Young

Something to Talk About ~ Bonnie Raitt

An Everlasting L❤️VE

Hello everyone.

My name is Chérie. 

I am the first born of the first born namesake of Phyllis 

And I am the first born grandchild of Phyllis and the late, great LeRoy 


I took a moment to look around the room. Recognize. 

I loved cooking with my grandma. She taught me her famous fried cabbage, red beans and rice, and an Egg-in-a-Nest. Oohs, aaahs, smiles and “YESSS!” affirmations filled the room.

I loved that she taught me how to bake grandpa’s favorite Pinapple Upside Down Cake 


And I love that she taught me Spanish.

Growing up, my grandma walked around the house talking to herself. “What did you say, Grandma?”, I would say. “Nothing. It’s just Spanish…” , she would say and continue talking to herself.

I wanted to know what she was saying! So, when I was in high school I decided to take a Spanish class. 

The first thing I wanted to learn how to say was hello to my grandma. Because she was my grandma! 

One day, I called her and surprised her. “¡Hola Mi Abuela!”  

(There was a gasp for air…) “¡HOLA MI NIETA BONITA! ¿COMÓ ESTÁ?!……”

And she was ‘off to the races’ they say.

“Woah, woah! Slow down grandma! I’m just learning!” , I said.

My grandma could not stop laughing. ( I could feel her smiling through the phone).

From that day, my grandma promised me to only speak Spanish to her.😄

We would never say goodbye. We would always end our conversations with  “I love you.”

So, the next thing I wanted to learn was how to say was ‘I love you ‘ to my grandma. Because she was my grandma.

As I choked back tears…¡TE AMO MUCHO MI ABUELA! ¡TE AMO MUCHO!

That was my speech when my grandmother passed. She turned 92 on May 23rd and she passed on the 30th.

Here I come. 


Her favorite color, blue.


Her favorite flower, rose.

I drew these roses when I was young. By the new cursive handwriting , I was young! 😛



Once there,

A week long affair…



My grandma lived a good life. 


Her book !!! I now have it. 😊

She was still doing Zumba up until right before she passed!😂

Memories….

My grandpa alwa had #ButterscotchCandy growing up! The funerals service set out a bowl of butterscotch candy without even knowing that information! #GrandpaWasThere 

My grandpa at his bar in the basement. Fyi, some of the items in the background were full of liquor. #Collector


My grandma crocheted these! #HotandHeavy #GoodTimes

Thank you to #EVERYONE 


#Overwhelmed #FullofEmotions

🎵 Loving you 

Is some kind of wonderful 

Because you’ve shown me

Just how much you care

You’ve given me the thrill of a lifetime

And made me believe you’ve got more thrills to spare, oh
