America has been blessed with an abundance of riches, and among the most treasured is our rich culinary heritage. From the American Indians who first taught the colonists to grow and cook the native foods, through the waves of immigrants who brought with them their own unique cultures, to contemporary cooks who create modern-day classics in step with today's life-styles, ours is a history of taste and diversity that spans generations.

Having cooked for so many years, I sometimes fail to remember that we all have to start with the basics! Techniques and terms that I use on a daily basis are foreign to the new cook and even those who have done basic cooking. So, this section is devoted to answering some of those questions you might have or are not sure of. Cooking With Lynne
On July 12, 2004 my son Robert, age 40, passed away from cancer. Needless to say, our family was devastated by his loss, and we miss him every day. He left behind his wife Theresa, and sons John and Chris, his brothers and sisters, many nieces and nephews who he loved and was devoted to.
On October 25, 2008 my daughter Mandy, age 47, suddenly passed away. The loss of another of my children has been devastating. Only parents who have lost a child in any way, can truly understand the pain.
This site was created in 1998 and is maintained by Lynne.
