I grew up in a family of great cooks - my Mom, my aunts & great-aunts, my grandmothers - all were shining examples, not only of great cooks, but of wonderful women to learn from and emulate. As the oldest granddaughter on both sides of the family, I had a lot of opportunity to watch and learn, and I consider any cooking "talent" I have today to be a result of "on-the-job-training" received at my Mom's and grandmothers' sides.
As the oldest of seven children, we have a large, extended family and lots of great potluck dinners. We get together for each person's birthday to cook and eat and visit (don't forget the cake & ice cream!)
There are several dishes that my family asks me to make: King Ranch Chicken, Fruity Chicken Salad, Homemade Macaroni & Cheese. But the one I am most proud of is my original recipe for Cheesy Chicken Squash Chowder.
I recently put together a 36-page book of our Family Recipes, as handed down through the generations. I really want to preserve our family's great cooking traditions for my kids and grandkids, and believe this book helps do that.
