Thank you, Beth, for dropping by solar-powered KRUU-FM in Fairfield this week for your "Weekend Edition" taping with host Liane Hanson that airs Sunday.
But even more so for one of the most sumptuous pieces of apple pie I've ever tasted (not to mention the fruitful conversation).
That it was made in the American Gothic house by an Ottumwa native only adds to the heartland sweetness.
