About the cook: I have been a Pampered Chef consultant for almost 20 years. I love to experiment with recipes! Life is too short to make the same recipe twice, so I'm constantly trying new recipes. I'm working on writing my own cookbook. I personally eat low carb, but my family doesn't, so I can make low carb or traditional recipes.
About the dish: I took a vintage recipe from an old church cookbook and updated it to become a modern recipe.
