When I was around six we lived in one of about 100ish side by side townhouses. The Maples, as it was named, was what now is deemed a "gated community" but our little hamlet wasn't gated, it was just a large group of single family homes that sometimes shared an outside wall with it's neighbor. This kind of housing development is mostly a Western thing but it made for a wonderfully protective and cohesive group of families who all looked out for one another. I had many friends in the neighborhood and we all walked to school together. All our mom's knew each other and would look after the kids if they showed up in the backyard.

I think I owe Ethyl a big thank you because since my gramma didn't write down her famous pie recipes that are now lost to time, I'm thrilled to have Ethyl's wonderful collection of recipes. Thank you Ethyl, for fleshing out our "family recipe" collection and giving me happy memories of summertime parties filled with pink lemonade and ten layer chocolate strawberry meringue torte. It still makes my mouth water. (if you find my photograph too blurry to get the actual recipe, just email me and I'll send it to you!)
