Hi My name is Gloria and we all live in the New England area so truthfully it means we love to cook. Most of us were around women who could put food down on the table and there would be no problems with clearing your plate. We had Saturday night franks and beans(homemade of course) coleslaw,desserts, breads, and Mac N Cheese, everything. We were always about comfort food. I think for the most part my Mom, Nana, and Grandmother's,and Aunt's made food they knew we would love, and they were so pleased to have everyone around the table, that to me is what makes the meal and a Family together.
