Destinie Michelle Official

I grew up in a very small town on the Eastern side of Washington. We had a church, post office, two corner stores, diner, fire station, and an elementary school. In order to avoid boredom, I became an explorer, tapping into my creative side by cooking worms for dinner and mud pies for dessert. Until I could read and found my mother’s, “Joys of Cooking” book. It was over! My parents soon came home to flour covered counters and I could hear the screams, Destinie!! Well here we are decades later, cooking has evolved from worms to fried chicken, by the way is one of my most favorites. The mud pies, well they’re sweet potato pies now.
