I would say I'm more the 'Paula Deen' type rather than 'Martha.' I love to cook for a crowd more than just for me.
I use to watch my mother cook but did very little of it until I got married. I really learned on my own and testing it out on him.
I am widowed and love for the kids and grandchildren to come so I can cook for them.
