Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
During my public speaking class at Virginia Tech, I had to give a speech/demonstration that would be important to college students. Well, of course, every college student needs to know how to make homemade marinara sauce. After all, it's inexpensive and goes a long way...or could even impress a date! Grandma shared her recipe with me. This was in the early 90's.
