I was privileged to be raised in a large family, a minister’s home, and learned the joy of cooking at a young age. Going to my kitchen and ‘creating’ a delightful meal is a joy and a ‘stress reliever’. Being married to a minister gave me the honor of doing a lot of entertaining. I’m a retired nurse of 48 years, but I consider my greatest accomplishment to be that of raising two sons. They have given me six grandchildren and I have enjoyed passing my love of cooking on to them when possible.
