Brenda Stanley has been cooking since she was a child and loves creating and sharing her own recipes. Her cookbook, “The Zucchini Houdini” has been a bestseller and a must have for gardeners (or those who end up with the squash on their doorstep). She was the host of her own cooking show on KPVI-TV for 10 years and is now devoting her time to writing, cooking, gardening, and grandkids! She and her veterinarian husband, Dave live on a small ranch in Blackfoot, Idaho with their dogs, horses, chickens, sheep and whatever else Brenda decides to add to her “petting zoo”.
There is very little that I enjoy more than cooking for friends and family. The dinner table is sacred to me. Even as a harried young mother of five children (including two sets of twins), I always made time to prepare a meal and have it served at the table. I show love with food, as my mother and grandmother before me. And I love to share my love of cooking- which is why I created my newspaper column and this website. I hope that you will enjoy what you find here and I would love to hear from you about your own cooking adventures.
