After over 50 years of marriage, raising two children and Retirement I finally found time to gather my favorite recipes. More than 150 lavishly recipes result in marvelous, vividly favored foods. The idea started when I decided to compile recipes for my daughters for their Christmas presents. Many of their friends and family loved the recipe book, so I decided to have it published.

In these pages you'll find quick meals but, if you have the itch to cook something from scratch, there are recipes for that, too. The recipes reflect my style of life, which is tightly interwoven into the context of my family life as well as countless gathering with friends.

My mother was a great cook! "Mama" worked all week, therefore, she would cook enough food on the weekend for the entire week. By Sunday afternoon, a galaxy of divine flavors-Fried chicken, hearty main dishes, potato salad, collard or turnips greens, slivers of red peppers, black-eye peas and the freshness of garlic floating throughout the house. This was coupled with the aroma of freshly baked buttery rolls, blackberry, peach or cherry cobbler and luscious sweet-potato pie.

Some of the recipes were gathered from many corners of America. Many kinds of soups, appetizers, beverages, breads, cakes, desserts, fish, steak, pork chops, and tacos. All kind of pies, salads and vegetables. Quickly made sauces, barbecue chicken and ribs, and marinades add instant hits of flavor with little effort. ENJOY!
