A little info on Marjorie Johnson: Marjorie Johnson has won thousands of Blue Ribbons for her baking. I first was introduced to her on the Jay Leno Show. She was full of energy and very enthusiastic about baking. I was eager to know more about her so I checked out her website Blue Ribbon Baking. It is interesting to read about this super baker. I urge you to visit her website.
