In the introduction to her website Steph had this to say:

"Nothing quite compares to the satisfying feeling of preparing your family a delicious meal they all enjoy. My passion for cooking surfaced when I began experimenting and reading cookbooks as an adult. I am trying to instill this joy in my children so they will hopefully appreciate the art growing up. Cooking is one of my favorite forms of creative expression".

"I hadn't heard of slump until I discovered this delicious recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook. One taste of this quick and easy dessert and I was hooked. We all love it".
