Introducing NormaLee

Who is NormaLee? What is this channel all about? Why are we cooking with NormaLee? You’ll find the answers to these questions and more in our introductory video.


First Post!!

We are excited to start sharing our family recipes, both old and new, with you.  I’m NormaLee’s most-middlest child, and I’m going to start the posts off.

About a year and a half ago, we had this idea–start making videos with NormaLee and show her cooking with her family.  One of the first videos we made was with her granddaughter, Ryann, making one of her favorite foods — gravy.  We really enjoyed the final video and Ryann’s brother Chance wanted his turn in front of the camera.  NormaLee and Chance made a video mixing up dough for one of his favorite things — chocolate chip cookies.  We are linking to the Cooking NormaLee YouTube Channel here for your entertainment and education.

More recipes will continue to be added and other family members will probably add posts.  We will even share a photo or two of our cooking adventures.
