"Boggie" Baking Tips and Recipes

"Boggie" got her name from her baby sister, Betty Jean. When Betty tried to pronounce "Margaret", it came out "Boggie", and the name stuck. All of "Boggie"'s sisters and brothers, nephews and nieces call her that to this day.

When she sets to cooking, she cooks up enough for Farouk's army, but it's always delicious.

Her column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back to see what's doing in "Boggie"'s kitchen.
