Talk show host Quad Webb shares some of her down-home dishes that combine classic comfort with modern flare while being delicious to boot.
As a young doll, the kitchen was where we congregated as a family. My mom and I shared special bonding time there, talking and laughing, and before I knew it, a meal had been prepared. My mom always presented cooking as fun and exciting, which made me eager to pitch in.
The kitchen allows us to be creative, spontaneous, and daring. Cooking is all about trusting yourself so you’re comfortable and confident enough to create. And, like my mom always said, “The most important lesson in the kitchen is keeping the pace and the timing.” Enjoy!
