In the past year, I have really started to enjoy cooking; I especially love creating healthy delicious meals that make my husband go "wow!". There is something about sharing a meal together that brings family and friends closer.

Uncle Warren's Johnny Cake

I got this wholesome cornbread recipe from my uncle - it is a thick, moist cornbread. We grew up calling this "johnny cake". It is delicious served with applesauce or syrup; my husband loves this paired with hot chili on a cold day!

Fruit Pie Bars

My mother always made these delicious bars when I was growing up. You can use any fruit pie filling for these - our favorite is cherry.
