Welcome to Cooking with Rebecca! I’m Rebecca, a home economist at heart with a lifetime of experience fueled by early learning from my mama, who stirred gravy as a preschooler growing up with five brothers. Her influence gave me a common-sense approach in the kitchen and a desire to meet needs. My recipes are family pleasers and comfort food, with an increasing repertoire of healthy options. Finding delicious alternative foods is important to me when being hospitable toward friends and family with dietary restrictions. But I’m also a carb addict, so you’ll find plenty of breads, pastas, and sweets on my site to make for special events and everyday.
