Grandma Barbie

Many of you that follow my blog have heard me talk about my Grandma Barbie. She is one of my most favorite people and she is definitely a part of Dippidee. You may not know but a lot of the recipes we use come from her and her side of my family. Grandma is one of the most amazing cooks. She has taught me an abundance of things in my life, my favorite being cooking and baking. Some of my favorite memories come from sitting at her bar spinning around on the wooden chair and watching her cook. I remember her sweet crooked arthritic hands kneading dough making the most delicious bread. Or throwing flour onto the counter and rolling out the most amazing pie crusts. I can hear the sounds of grease crackling on the stove while she fried sour dough scones. Then the taste of smothering those scones with real butter and fresh raspberry jam. I have always been amazed at how she could do the most amazing things with the simplest ingredients. Recently I had the privilege of spending some time with Grandma. She is now almost 89 years old and I feel like every second with her is so precious. Grandma, thank you for passing on your love of good food to me. Thank you for teaching me your skills of turning such simple things into culinary masterpieces. Thank you for sharing your secrets with me, like every fridge should have butter and cream at all times. And thank you for making me some of the best food I have ever eaten. You are forever in my heart. I love you always. -Your Granddaughter Marcee
