Find your way around the kitchen.

In my opinion, the true experts in the cooking world are the women who have spent most of their lives in the kitchen cooking for their families. I spoke to two veteran cooking women, Beverly Turbeville and Joan Heller, who shared their own personal tricks of the trade.

"My favorite breakfast is oatmeal cooked with brown sugar, raisins and sliced walnuts. The flavors are just so great together." - Joan Heller, 79.

"I love that southern home cooking. Eggs, bacon, grits and ham on the skillet. You have to eat a huge breakfast at my house." - Beverly Turbeville, 80.
