FEATURED ON WCSH 6 MORNING REPORT
Today, my mother rarely cooks. Her favorite line is: “Been there, done that.” And she marvels that I enjoy cooking so many items from scratch for so many people week after week. She seems to forget that I got my high standards and passion for good food from her.
My mother was a stay-at-home mom in the early 1960‘s. When she wasn’t wallpapering a room, changing somebody’s cloth diaper, or reading to us about the exploits of The Cat in the Hat, she was watching Julia Child on public television and clipping Craig Claiborne’s columns out of The New York Times. My mother kept a lucite box filled with neatly hand-written recipe cards. I can only imagine how many imperfect cards must have been ripped up by mother or her talented friends before the recipes were deemed good enough to be traded.
