I’ve been a competitive eater for seventeen years and traveled where the intestinal byways lead. Often shirts are stained with chili or key lime pie causes an upset stomach – basically, beauty is a rarity on the pro-eating circuit. Fashion is forgotten for napkins and food, once pristine, is punished, mashed, mooshed before mastication.
What makes Mary Bowers so unique is that her homespun clothing creations stand up to the spoils of consumption – they are Smithsonian Museum worthy – or at least should hang in the food court of the Mall of America. From hot dog clutches to hamburger high heels, she wears the food, not on her chin, like most of us, but like the beautiful collision of the runway and the buffet.
She has expanded not her waistline, although she is a fine Major League Eater, but her food knowledge and know how. Her recipes are meant for the gourmet, not the gourmand, but then again, a pro-eater can always triple the recipe during training season.
While you eat of Mary’s creation, take pride in its delicate well-crafted nature, but most of all, take your time and enjoy!

I am very particular about my humor. Some folks try to be funny; other folks are funny. Mary has a unique style that makes me laugh. She has a certain way with words that makes me smile. We know Mary from the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on the Fourth of July, but there is more to her than just that. Much more. Get ready to laugh and to find some fun recipes that everyone will enjoy.
