"As a young boy I spent most of my time with my grandmother. She literally took care of me. She believed in me, and that allowed me to be happy and feel secured about myself growing up.

Her peanut butter is my favorite. She takes salted dried beef, cooks that beef, and adds peanut butter to it. Or she prepares vegetables mixed with butter and peanut butter. We eat those with Sadza. It is SO good.

Of course I could try making the dishes here. But without her peanut butter, it would never be the same thing."
