Personal Notes:
Pecola is one of my most favorite cousins. Her peach cobbler is to die for. She is an excellent cook and has been cooking professionally all of her life. She cooked in a local hotel restaurant and is now a chef on a riverboat on the Mississippi. She does use recipes at work but her home cooking is not as exact and is more about a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
