About Chef Char
I have been cooking for the absolute love and fun of it for many years. I grew up in a farming community on Michigan’s west side where much of my food has always come from sources such as my dad’s enormous garden, the vast orchards of a few farmer friends, the depths of the waters of the Big Lake and even the humble woods of my back yard.
Cook Time: Approx. 35 min.
