Jennifer R. Hubbard's Secret

This is a twist on "tell me a secret" - it's about a secret that I don't know myself.

My husband makes Linzer torte, which is a raspberry-almond pastry, from a secret family recipe. It's yummy. He usually makes it around Christmastime. One year, I brought in a little to work, and one of my co-workers raved about it and asked for the recipe.

"No," my husband said. "It's a secret."

I thought he was kidding, because he's 1) often kidding and 2) a very generous guy. But no. He and his whole family take this recipe very seriously. I don't even know it myself, being related to them only by mere marriage.

And at this point, I don't want to know, because it would make me nervous to hold such powerful information. Secret international cooking agents might come after me. So as long as he keeps making it and I can eat it, the process can stay secret, as far as I'm concerned.

- Jennifer R. Hubbard
