Aunt Pat was Marilyn’s cousin I used her recipe for the base and added a few twists…hence the name. She developed the base and deserves the credit.

Aunt Pat was a beautiful lady who loved Jesus and served as a devoted mother and wife traveling the world as an Air Force wife sharing Jesus with everyone she met.

She was born in Virginia but lived out her days in the great state of Texas.

Aunt Pat lived in New Braunfels and was a great hostess.  My first visit to Texas 28 years ago was in her lovely home.  She ironed Todd’s shirt his first day in the Air Force. I never did get the hang of it so by the time we moved to California I became very grateful for the base dry cleaners.
