Cooking Food With Flavor

Mary "Klibs" Dralle started to cook for her family when she was 12 years old and her grandmother, Helen Dralle, came out to her Southern California kitchen for a vacation. She taught Mary how to make one basic cookie recipe and then told her to master that one recipe and then use it to make other cookies. That was the start of something wonderful, expanding one recipe into several versions. During her teenage years, Mary supplemented her income by babysitting and house-sitting. This led to reading cookbooks and writing down recipes, modifying them and trying them out on her family as it was her responsibility to do the grocery shopping and meal preparation. Thus, the love of cooking began. While in college, she was a nanny to a couple of families and introduced many a wild dish, like Eggplant Parmesan, to the children which would later become requested favorites.
