I have always had a passion for food. When I was a kid, I basically lived in the kitchen with my grandmother (Mamawl), a self made homemaker, who taught me how to cook, process and preserve a wide variety of foods. Each year we would enter the open division at county fair; we won the overall championship 5 out of the 6 years we entered, capturing over 250 blue ribbons. Mamawl’s homemade pie crust, divinity candy, and sweet pickles never received anything less than a blue ribbon. My secret self-made sour cream coffee cake recipe followed similar suit, not only winning the blue ribbon prize each year, but also back-to-back purple grand champion ribbons at both the county and state fairs. I used to tease Mamawl that my coffee cake was the only thing that could beat her homemade pie crust. Some things in life are just too good to totally eliminate from one’s diet!
