Everyone thinks their mama’s home cooking is the best – but the children and grandchildren of Carmela Randack may have an advantage in that competition.
Carmie was born in Pittsburgh, and her family moved to New Mexico when she was just a year old. She’s made Collin County her home since she and husband Jerry moved to the area 41 years ago.
As a stay-at-home mom of three children in the late 1980s, Carmie and her girlfriends tried to make a little extra money by peddling their wares at arts and crafts shows in the Dallas area. One of those women sold homemade goods.
“They were awful, and she sold a ton of them,” Carmie recalled. “I said, ‘I think I can do better than that.’”
And so she did.
