Welcome to Arkansas Cooks!

Mary TwedtI am so glad you're here! Inside you'll find information about episodes of Arkansas Cooks and great recipes from listeners, my family and even some of the cooks featured on Arkansas Cooks over the years on FM 89 KUAR. We also plan to add an archive of Arkansas Cooks episodes in the near future, so stay tuned!

Speaking of recipes, I invite you to find a recipe, try it out for your family and friends, and then come back and rate it to let me and everyone else know what you thought of the recipe. You can even add a comment about the recipe if you have more to say than stars can show! Have a recipe you'd like to share with other Arkansas Cooks fans? Click Submit a Recipe up at the top to send us your favorite recipe.

I also want to make sure you know about the Twedt Family Cookbook! It's a collection of favorite family recipes my family has gathered and handed down through the generations, and when we put them all together, we knew we had a special cookbook that we had to make available to you. You can buy the Twedt Family Cookbook right here on the Arkansas Cooks website. Pay securely, and we'll ship it to you ASAP!

Thanks again for stopping by ArkansasCooks.com!

This is  my last interview and it was also my first! Evette Brady was my first interview on October 5th 2002. I happy to have her as my guest today January 10th, 2015. She is a wonderful chef and I could not imagine ending any other way. Thanks to all the great listeners for so many years. Thanks to the great chefs and cooks I have interviewed as well, Arkansas has a rich culinary history because of you all. This has been a labor of love and I could not have done it without the support of KUAR. I could also not have done this without the help and expertise of Travis Hill. Thank you Travis!

Life is too short to eat bad food, so always eat great food & eat it with people you love, it will taste so much better!
