Homes that Cook

Best-Kept Secrets for Buying, Selling and Creating a Home

When Lettiann Southerland first arrived in Kansas City, she was desperately homesick. Leaving her home and family in Pennsylvania was a little more difficult than she believed it would be. Like many of us who have faced relocation away from our roots, she missed the family dinners, the wine and appetizers under the grape arbor, the laughter and the closeness of her family.

Southerland, a successful realtor, looked for a way that she could turn her homesickness and memories into something that could last a lifetime. She and her brothers grew up learning about food, appreciating food and that dinner was more of an event than just another meal. So she decided to collect all of those recipes from her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins before it was too late. She set out to collect them and then share them with her family so that they could later be shared with younger members of the family.

Southerland has successfully taken two very special areas of her life and combined them in a book of real estate buying and selling tips along with delicious family recipes, with the hope that they will enrich your life in your quest for a home that cooks.
