    No, but my mom used to make this cake made with oranges and orange zest and wrap a quarter in a paper towel or foil and whoever got that slice of cake would have good luck that year. She was Greek. :eek:

    My grandma made the best black-eyed peas. She always used ham hocks. Mine do not taste the same.
