Late this afternoon my neighbor, Barb, brought two pieces of this dessert to me! It was still warm - right out of the oven! Barb is a retired home economics teacher. She has a vast flower garden that she keeps in tip-top shape. She and her husband, Bob, are great neighbors. Here she is with one of her exotic plants - a Voodoo Plant.
