I've been cooking forever it seems like. I learned by watching my mother & grandmother. No one could make fried chicken like my gram. Beyond belief!! Not to mention her peach pie. My son has followed in my footsteps & is even a better cook that I am or probably could hope to be. (I think I'm jealous). Many years ago I had a catering business @ first w/my cousin but she dropped out shortly. My son started helping me out & it was awesome. However, this was on the side from my regular 8 - 5 job & I just couldn't keep up w/it.
