Betty Rae Frandsen, who contributed most of the recipes in this book, is the Mom anyone would hesitate to leave. Her son, Kent P. Frandsen, fueled the fire when he found himself away from home for the first time. With a degree in business management, he organized the project--with the help of his sister-in-law, writer Kathryn J. Frandsen. Together the three of them bring you a cookbook with a difference....Kathryn J. Fransen is the author of 'Where's Mom Now That I Need Her?: Surviving Away from Home', published 2004 under ISBN 9780961539016 and ISBN 0961539011.
