When Sarasota’s Barbara Kabobel makes her tangy, buffalo chicken dip, “it just disappears.” This time, it won her the first-place prize in the “Dips and Salsa” category, along with bragging rights. Barbara reports that one of the many pleasures of rambling through 47 states with her husband Jerry is “window shopping” for RVs. “I get to dream about all these great motorhomes,” she enthuses.
