Deb Baker's Green Bay Chili
I love the Michigan Upper Peninsula, the place of my birth. That’s why my very first mystery series featured Gertie Johnson, a Yooper (that’s what we’re called) with a stun gun in her purse, a nose for trouble, and a dream of one day creating her very own cookbook. That day is here.
You might wonder what Green Bay chili has to do with Michigan, since Green Bay is in Wisconsin. Let me tell you, there is a huge divide between lower and upper. If Yoopers had their way, they’d be part of Wisconsin.
Yoopers are huge Packer fans.
