My Auntie loved to cook. My greatest memories would be entering the house on Pershing and smelling those aromas coming from the kitchen. The spaghetti sauces and of course my favorite her Frittata. I would always love going to the house and be with her, my Uncle Joe and cousins, Ken and Gary. Very fond memories.
