I was raised on foods out of a can, box, or frozen. To have anything fresh was a treat, and I wanted to change that when I was on my own. I now understand why I had so many stomach problems growing up. My husband and I love to seek out new and different things, and create or modify good home cooking. I love to see what is out there, and what real food taste like without the preservatives, etc. Nothing is quite as good as stuff made from your own garden, which is my new passion as well.
