Happily, I grew up going to the same church as Bonnie Smith. When you go to the same church as Bonnie Smith, you will be spoiled with her famous moist cakes and.. stromboli. And when you live with my mom, she will make you Bonnie-style stromboli at home. Needless to say, I had a wonderful childhood. Last night we had this for dinner. My first stromboli on my own. And let me tell you a little something about stromboli.. you can't go wrong. I just love saying that word. Stromboli.
