When I walked into the Buford Little General Store one day earlier this month, co-owner Missy West handed me a cupcake.
“Try it,” she said. Never one to argue, I did.
“This is pretty good,” I said. “Did you make these?”
Missy wasted little time with a reply.
“Yep,” she said. “Now it’s your turn,” before handing me a Ziploc bag of something resembling pancake batter and a cake recipe for Amish Friendship Bread.
“First Day, Feb. 7,” was written on the bag.
