Grandma LOLLIE loved to cook. Some of my fondest memories at grandma's house, are the wonderful smells that came from her kitchen. I can still smell warm peach cobbler, dark rich chocolate pie and country fried chicken that could "knock your socks off." She wasn't happy until we had sampled it all, and then wanted to hear us say how great it was, so she could say "was it really?" Grandma weaved her special love into every bite and made me feel she had cooked it "just for me." I miss you grandma, 'cause nobody does it like you.
