A couple of years ago I was a judge at a contest at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills.  The winner for most original design was Antoinette Kroll. My Dad used to love to go to the cafeteria at the hospital and enjoy the fantastic sweets that were made under the auspices of this wonderful lady.   Read why, “The Hospital Loves Her Tasty Touch”.  It’s a story written by Lisa Buie, Staff Writer with the St. Petersburg Times.  Click on the link below:
