The blue ribbon decorated, red dressed delight made an hour stop in St. Michael earlier this month.
Ask about anyone, and to know Marjorie Johnson is to love her. The most unlikely of superstars, the former stay-at-home mom and blue-ribbon baker is now an international phenom, hailing from right here in the Twin Cities. Johnson, who appears on everything from the "Twin Cities Live" program on her hometown's ABC affiliate to a gig as a corresepondant for the "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," won't reveal her exact age. But she emits such a youthful exuberance despite her senior status, she's a favorite with all ages. "I don't know how long I'll keep going," Johnson said with a smile. "As long as they keep calling, I'll go. I love to talk, so they pair me up with some interesting folks." Johnson, who has earned more than 1,000 blue ribbons …

The grandma-turned author-turned television sensation will be in St. Michael to promote her book at 1 p.m.
To see Marjorie Johnson is to love her. Just ask "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno. The Robbinsdale native, a blue-ribbon baker (she's won literally thousands of ribbons), broke into the media with KSTP Radio and Joe Soucheray's "Garage Logic" program. Today, she brings her fiesty, happy wit to the Crow River Senior Center for a 1 p.m. demonstration and book-signing. Cost is $5 for attendance, $25 for attendance and a book. Since then, she's hopped in front of the bright lights on the station's afternoon program, "Twin Cities Live," and has even made her way onto the "Tonight Show" on a frequent basis. Johnson's small stature has made her a favorite with Leno, who has made her a correspondent. She's taken her baking dishes and treats to the…
