A Daughter's Tribute

Ever since I was a little girl, I would wake up to the smell of dad’s famous Chipped Beef Over Biscuits, and go to bed only when bribed with his Snickerdoodles.

To this day, I don’t know what was more important: the taste of his endless creative concoctions, or the fact that dad’s passion for the kitchen gave us quality time to talk. There was me, sitting on the counter swinging my feet. Dad in his apron, calmly coaching me while forever fashioning his world’s-first family favorites, like Cheeseburger Soup.

My father taught me all about creativity in the kitchen. But more importantly, he taught me that nothing—not one thing—is more valuable than family time. That’s how the Baking Buddy® was born.

Happy behind the scenes in business and public, my father was at his vocal best with two things on the stove and one in the oven. But the minute the ¼ teaspoon went missing in a drawer full of disorganized utensils, the silence was deafening. All talk went on the back burner until the rogue item was located.

To fix the conversation killer, my dad invented the Baking Buddy®. With it, the tools you use most in the kitchen are always at your fingertips. So you spend less time worrying about silly things, and focus on all that really matters.

I love my dad with all my heart. And I’m proud of his simple-but-smart idea. I hope you buy one. Because you’ll have endless helpings of something money can’t buy these days: a great conversation piece.
