I was blessed to have a Grandma (we called her Mammaw) that could cook out of this world, and my mom (now 70 years old) is still destroying waistlines every time she is present. It doesn't matter where you are from, or where you go, food brings people together. For people out there who think they can't cook...all you need is a recipe, and you can cook. Don't like the recipe? Try a new one..the more you cook the more you can alter foods to match your preferences. The wonderful thing about cooking is that you don't have to stay in between the lines. I am always looking for a new spin on even my tried and true favorite recipes. I love this website!
