Featured Cook: Melinda Paxton

Ocassionally, I have a “featured quilter” on my blog, but today (for the first time) I have a “featured cook”. I am excited to share a recipe from my childhood friend, Melinda Holloway Paxton’s cookbook “Remember When We Cooked?” Melinda’s dad, Kenneth Holloway, was an extension agent when I was in 4-H. She and I are lifelong friends and have great memories together.

“Remember When We Cooked?” is about seven friends who met while working at an electric company as home economists. Melinda Paxton, Diane Bim, Jan Davis, Kay Davis, Connie Moyers, Christie Pare, and Gail Simmons traveled and gave demonstrations. In the cookbook, the seven ladies provide family recipes that are special to them, as well as an award winning 4-H Food Show recipe.

Melinda believes it is important to cook at home and the cookbook promotes sitting down together and eating meals as a family.

I recently cooked “Praline Chicken”. It was quick, easy, and delicious!
