All Seasonal Holiday Treats
Wedding or Birthday Treats!!
I had to write to share with everyone looking for something deliciously different this holiday season. I come from a very large family which includes (past and present) some extraordinary women on my mother's side with a gift for food preparation. Years ago many of our ancestors in the South worked as domestics in private homes and their cooking became popular for the soulful touch that made some well known recipes what they are today. Having migrated from the South, my family also brought the love of good food with them when they settled in Pennsylvania. My great grandmother, grandmother, and mother all worked as domestics, as well as several aunts. And currently we still have great cooks around.
The Love of Family and Food
Whenever we have gatherings or reunions there is an emotional tie between realizing the blessings of family fellowship and the much anticipated menu! Heavenly aromas, beautifully presented entrees and side dishes, and desserts to bring tears to your eyes! It has been so wonderful for the generations to continue to teach and hand down this love of good food. Now I am going to be honest and reveal that this particular family trait did not settle in me, I actually hate cooking! However, I am very grateful for those sisters, aunts, and cousins who did find the pleasure in it to develop their skills of fine food preparation.

Just wanted to note that my father's side of family also produced great cooks! I used my mother's family to lead up to Monica's story. Love you all!
