Description: The Kitchen, I call it the International Gathering Place. I don't think you really know someone until you've eaten around their table. 

Fresh, colorful vegetables, plump poultry, grain-fed beef and smoked meats were foods I took for granted while growing up. Sure, we used lots more sugar, salt and butter than we use today, but those wonderful down-home flavors can still be enjoyed by using herbs and peppers to give us the old fashioned goodness with less calories. 

I've researched recipes from our ten generations here in Lancaster County. In the tradition of the Herr women from the days when Hans Herr crossed the Atlantic to settle in "Penn's Woods" in the early 1700s, Up-Home, Down-Home represents the cultural development of recipes from the most intimate, formal setting to the easy-going, spur-of-the-moment family dinner. We all have the same ingredients, but it is up to us to interpret their use and presentation. 

I enjoy sharing my family and friends favorites and through these pages, you will understand more deeply my love for this abundant land called "America". Quick, easy to prepare dishes include many favorites from our Chefs at the Groff's Farm Restaurant and Cameron Estate Inn. Try these in your home, then visit us anytime in Mount Joy.
