I grew up in a small Mennonite community where meals at my grandparents always included sides of fresh homemade bread, Swiss cheese, and applesauce. In the summers fresh produce was always plentiful - green beans, cantelope, berries, sliced tomatoes. I still love cooking things starting from scratch - the fresher and closer to earth the better. In the summer, I enjoy finding creative ways to cook using fruits and veggies from the garden.
