Harper, who has been retired from cross-country trucking since 2005, serves as head of Ruston’s Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion Posts as well as handling a number of other jobs.

She said her strategy is to mimic what is popular in food trends.
“I collect recipes all year long from newspapers, magazines, TV and I ask myself ‘I wonder how this would be with peaches?’” Holmes said.
