Hello Dawn,
How very precious of you to write such a lovely article. I am honored that you think I look like your mother. I'm sure she was a wonderful lady and I'm sure you miss her very much. That picture is from one when I placed as First Alternate MS SR Alabama in 2007 and in 2008. I have been singing all my life and that was my talent. I lost my own mother and daddy in 2003 only four months apart. They still lived in the house where I grew up. They had been married 63 year, my daddy was almost 92 and my mother was 81. I am fast catching up with them in age as I am headed to 71 next April. I am sending you many Best Wishes...Jewel 11/2013

This is the exact same recipe that my own mother used to make when I was a child. It was handed down to her and her sister from their mother. This fudge is a holiday tradition. I lost my mother 10 years ago and even though I know the recipe by heart I use it as an excuse to call my Auntie at the holidays to ask her for recipe. It gives us a chance to reconnect and reminisce about my mom and the years gone by and bring her up to date on what's new. On a more personal note I just wanted to tell you that you photo is what really prompted me to write. You look very similar to my mother, except she is brunette. On of the photos I have of her, she is a beautiful red dress like yours. And just like you she looks stunning. Thank you for sharing your recipe and reminding me of my wonderful mom. Dawn Cordova
