For probably twenty years I've followed a website that is full of anonymous secrets. We all have secrets, don't we? Perhaps even secrets we wouldn't dare tell a soul, except perhaps a psychiatrist. The site is Postsecret.com. Sometimes there are things on there you'd rather not be reading about. Some are very sad, others aren't fit for a child to see. I don't recommend the site to anyone who is easily offended. So there's your warning. I must have missed a Sunday or two, however, because this morning I found an interesting and blog-worthy secret that has been talked about on the Today Show and passed around on Reddit, whatever that is; but I first found it today.
A woman decided to share one of her grandmother's recipes that her whole family has refused to share with outsiders for 100 years. She felt their attitude was "petty" so she renamed the apple cream pie "Petty Aunt Pie". Here's what her secret looked like on Post Secret:
Petty defined: 1. of little importance, trivial. 2. of secondary importance, rank, or scale; minor.
I have never understood why people wouldn't want to share a recipe; it's a gift that costs nothing, yet one that is priceless to anyone who loves to cook; I consider it an honor if anyone asks for one of my recipes.
Some of you may have already read or heard about this. I'm just doing my part in helping a lady get the last laugh on her petty aunts. Here's the story on the Today website: PETTY AUNT PIE
What a story, right?
Have a blessed Sunday.
