I have been blessed to be raised in a family of great country cooks. I have many memories from my childhood of both of my grandmothers' brilliance in the kitchen. As a child it seemed a bit like magic to me when they would take stuff like flour, salt , and butter, and other staples and make a beautiful cake or an incredible bread pudding. They loved their families with their food, with their time, and their effort to make something special out of the ordinary. I feel honored that I am able to still share on of my grandmother's kitchen with her. I have much still to learn from her knowledge and experiences both in the kitchen and in life. I hope to share a bit of that magic here with you.
