My grandparents were from Kentucky—I’m related to Daniel Boone. He was my great-great-great uncle.
Going to see my grandparents was like going back 50 years. Every weekend was a history lesson in Southern food.
I grew up on the edge of a national park in Canada – timberwolves, creeks, snow drifts. I really did have to walk home six miles through the snow, like your grandparents used to complain.
