Debbie was born and raised in Iowa and is a farm girl at heart. Her love of food came from her mother who was always clipping recipes and collecting cookbooks. Debbie continues that tradition and now shares her life-long collection of recipes. Only cream-of-the-crop recipes have earned a spot in her book. She hopes that these recipes become some of your favorites and that you'll share them with all of your family and friends by entertaining at home.
This book is dedicated to her Mom, Marlene Frances Lestina. "She has been gone for 14 years, but she's in my heart every day. When I'm in the kitchen, fond memories of the time we spent together come to mind. I can still see her rolling out the dough to make cinnamon rolls for our Thanksgiving family dinner and me eating brown sugar out of the bag. This book would not have been possible without her guidance. Love ya Mom!"
The cookbook is divided into spring, summer, fall and winter events with appropriate seasonal recipes. Invite your friends or family over for a backyard picnic and bring back memories of a simpler time with good conversation and outdoor games.
