Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer, and with that comes backyard get togethers, BBQ’s, and picnics. Chances are the usual cast of characters will be present at most summer gatherings. You know them well: coleslaw, potato salad, and pasta salad.
As a cook, I find my happy place while preparing homestyle, comfort food. Soups from scratch, sauces that simmer all day, and homemade Salisbury Steak with real gravy just about make me swoon. You won’t find much fancy flair in my humble kitchen. You won’t have to question which piece of cutlery you should use while dining in my home. You won’t be left looking at your meal and asking, “What is that, and how do I go about eating it?” I find comfort in the simplicity of food.
