Why home-cookin' is the best

In today's economy, the struggle to provide delicious and healthy meals is REAL. Using pantry items instead of pre-packaged items is one way to save!


Fresher ingredients with no preservatives is definitely a healthier option.


Unless you work in that particular industry, do you REALLY know how your food is prepared?


Not sure if our families are truly that honest, but don't they always say "home cookin' is best"???

Our story is longer than this, but this should give you an idea:
Melinda Koonce

Melinda Koonce


My name is Melinda and I prepared my first meal when I was 4 years old. Mom stood me on a chair and supervised while I made chili. Sure, it was canned beans and she helped with frying the hamburger, but my family gave me the credit and the rave reviews. Since then, I have wanted to please people with food that I prepare. When they compliment me now, I say thank you and I know that what they are tasting is love…

Sue Fuller


Sue Ellen Fuller Koonce, was a genius in the kitchen. Examples: she made a liver and onions that liver haters would scarf down and beg for more and a sworn coleslaw-hater discovered that he LOVED her coleslaw!
I watched her most of my life and picked up quite a few of her methods, but Mom didn’t measure anything and I HAVE to measure everything! Just like fingerprints and snowflakes, each cook is different. Thank goodness, cuz my gravy is made way different than hers was, but they come out the same.

Tracy Little


Tracy Marie Little Fuller, I donned the Stone Soup Queen. In the 70’s money was nearly non-existent, so there was no “going out to dinner” or the like. I would look in the practically empty cabinets and pantry and fridge and wonder what the heck we were gonna eat! By dinner time, Grandma had a full size, family pleasing meal on the table!! I still don’t know how she did it!!
