Cookbook author Stacey Little is a fan of cast iron cooking utensils. So much so that he collects the stuff. “I’ve always loved cast iron because it’s what my family always cooked in and it’s so versatile,” he said. “When it’s seasoned properly, it’s the best nonstick cookware you can buy. I have some of my great-grandmother’s cast iron and other pieces I have collected along the way … I cook in it all the time … (it) is great for everything from baking to frying.”

'Garden fresh' all winter
Canning may be the way Grandma taught her, but when Spring Valley native Johnnell Manfredini is short on time, she preserves vegetables from her parents’ garden the modern way — in the freezer. She actually prefers to can, Manfredini said, but if there is not enough of a product to warrant an entire batch, she will save herself some time and freeze it instead.

Keeping salad for home better than sharing at potluck
Stacey Little never intended to write a cookbook. He was “just” a blog writer, reviewing restaurants and giving his opinions on the food scene from his Alabama home. When he started publishing recipes from a family collection, things took off. “I don’t really consider myself a writer,” Little said. “I had a lot of reservations at first about doing the book. I realized that folks were desperate for quick and easy recipes that called for ingredients that they already had on hand.”

Welcome to my food world
For some this may be the first time reading my blog since it usually is published online only. But lucky for you, you can now find my words of wisdom on a monthly basis. Using the premise behind the movie “Julie & Julia,” I cook up a recipe from a cookbook and recreate it in my home kitchen, following, as best as I am able, the directions in the cookbook. This sometimes can be a challenge for me, as I often will adjust a recipe to my liking.
