Annie Stevens Food as Culture

My favorite food:
I am a junk food junkie! I love cake.I am pretty picky, no store bought, pre-made cakes, but I love to taste cakes.

What food means to most to me:

Anything that my Grandmother made when I was growing up really would be what food means the most to me. I knew she put all her love into the food she made us. My mother now does that for my kids. They are "scratch cooks," "good old American cooking." They always could just "throw" something together. I am not good at this. My mother fridge is always stuffed full of food. There was something about it, a flavor, that no one else can capture

If there is one thing my Grandma would always make it would be her pecan pies at Thanksgiving. She doesn't cook anymore so someone else brings the pecan pies. Our family uses the same recipe but it is not the same.

  1. I am a huge sweets person as well, I actually work at a cupcake bakery called Gigi's Cupcakes. If you ever are looking for a new sweet treat to try it is really good. That is really cute that you get together with your family still and enjoy spending time with your grandma. Her and your son are adorable. (:
