Love: Pudding was ‘real treat’ for Langley thespian

Love: Start your own family traditions - a special section of the Langley Advance published Dec. 8, 2016

My mom, Jean Sampson, was a singing and piano teacher in Langley for 30 years, from 1950 to 1980.

She taught six days a week, so didn’t have spare time to bake. Dessert only appeared on very special occasions.

This delicious saucy lemon pudding was a real treat in our house when I was growing up, as my mom only made it when my older sisters, Margaret, Claire and Vicki, were coming home for visits.

It continues to be a special occasion recipe for my sisters and me.
