The Country Cook began as a weekly column filled full of favorite recipes from the collection of Stacy Rice. Rice is the Managing Editor of the Drexel Star and has a passion for recipe collection. "I have been collecting them since I was a little girl," says Rice.
Rice enjoys cooking and sharing her recipes, thus the creation of the Country Cook. You can see her recipes, tried and true, in the Drexel Star each and every week. All the recipes promise to be simple, practical with today's busy lifestyles and yummy all the way through!
