And because this recipe is often incorrectly recorded in most recipe books, even if you think you’ve had it, you probably haven’t.

            Marilyn Monroe, baby sitter  Sep 26, 2013  Our family photos feature the tragic Hollywood legend. But until recently, I never understood the reason why  – “Marilyn Monroe was my mother’s baby sitter,” I used to tell the neighborhood kids, whenever our rambunctious play took us inside the house. The girls went open-mouthed with wonder and admiration. The boys were skeptical, even scornful: “Movie stars don’t baby-sit!”. Thank you Marilyn, from little Marie Rizzo’s first-born son.
