Nobody Doesn't Like Sara Lee, Marie Callender, and Mrs. Smith('s)

I tried to find images of the women behind most of America's desserts today; it took some work.

For Sara Lee, I tracked down this first:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitchens_of_Sara_Lee
That gave me her full name. So then I just search for images:
http://images.google.com/images?q=Sara%20Lee%20Schupf&sourceid=navclient-ff&rlz=1B3GGGL_enUS292US292&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi
And there she was, second row.

Marie Callender was easier.

Bam. Right there on the page.

Mrs. Smith's website didn't have a photo of their namesake, but I got her first name:
http://www.mrssmiths.com/aboutOurHistory.html
Then I just googled that name, and voilá, the piemaker herself.
http://images.google.com/images?q=%22Amanda%20Smith%22&sourceid=navclient-ff&rlz=1B3GGGL_enUS292US292&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi

Well, okay. I'm not sure WHICH Amanda Smith was the ACTUAL "Mrs. Smith," but I hazarded a guess.*

sara lee, marie callender, amanda smith
