To this day, my DH thinks I perfected his grandma's recipe.....god love them both!!!!!

Hubby is working in DC for a while and the first thing he said after his first trip to the grocery store up there was: "They don't have any Wolf Brand Chili up here!" We make my Dad's recipe for chili most of the time, but always have a can of Wolf in the pantry for hot dogs or chili cheese fries/potatoes/whatever...

Reminds me of the time I found out that the beloved family recipe for pecan pie was lifted straight off the bottle of karo syrup. Only difference was doubling the vanilla and baking 5 more minutes. I had to be married into that family almost 10 years before I was given the secret.
