My Grandmother, who was blessed to roam this earth for over 103 years was a fabulous cook. Her desserts and love of desserts are legendary. My co-workers really loved her Jewish coffee cake and would quickly make it disappear when she and later, my Mother would bring one to the office. Paul, who can eat more food than any man I know, would spend tons of time talking to her when she visited. I honestly believe he really appreciated her, but I think he was really pushing for his own cake!
