What is a grape, other than a baby ball of wine? What is a gummi bear, other than a shapely, sugary beef hoof? What is a blackberry, other than a little box of jewels plucked from the shelves of Mariano's by Sherman, the fruit whisperer? Once you try chef Dawn's patented blend of grapes, raspberries, blackberries, and Albanese Christmas gummi bears, you'll never go back.
"Mix all the toppings into my chili so it blends into one homogenous soup," you'll say to the waitress at your favorite Peotone diner. "Oh," she'll say wearily. "You must have tried it Dawn's way."
