This is my friend Kim. She was my “little sib” for two years in SWE (Society of Women Engineers) Big Sib-Little Sib mentoring program. She also became one of my closest friends and a fellow SWE officer.
During my final year of college, she brought a pan of creme de menthe bars to a SWE officer potluck. They were rich and sweet and had the perfect balance of mint and chocolate, with neither overwhelming the other. I begged her for the recipe for weeks.
For my bridal shower, Kelley asked everyone to bring a copy of their favorite recipe for me to take with me in my move to Ithaca post-wedding. When I opened Kim’s gift and saw the creme de menthe recipe, I did a little happy dance. There may have been a little cheering thrown in there, too.
