My mom would add a dash to everything, that is everything she cooked. She was an excellent cook. Mom was always a step ahead of everyone when it came to cooking and entertaining. She was probably one of the first ones to try cream cheese. We were raised as Philadelphia Cream Cheese as a staple to our food. She would have had a lot of fun now with all of the gourmet foods that you can get locally now.
These earrings reminded me of a dash...a dash of this and a dash of that and voilà, you have a masterpiece you can share with others.
