When it comes to fancy bread-making, Diana Bruns has street credibility.
Her "resume" includes a multi-year stint as a television background cook for the late Marcia Adams of PBS fame.
Bruns acquired lots of good recipes from that 1990s time period, none more mouth-watering than one for Potica, a traditional Yugoslavian Christmas coffeecake notable for the rich vein of walnut filling hidden in a swirl within each slice.
To this day, the rural Bowling Green resident is known for making and giving Potica, but her own until-now-secret version is actually "a conglomeration of two recipes.
"I got the original recipe from a cooking magazine about 20 years ago." It might have been Bon Appetit, she's not sure.
