GoodGrandma℠ Recipe of the Month comes from our Grandpa Cloward. His chicken and rice recipe was everyones favorite, I mean EVERYONES favorite! Here is a little background on Wells. He served as a cook in World War II in the Navy on a troop carrier. After the war he return home and he and his wife, Myrle, opened up their own restaurant. A decade later, he was hired by the local university to create a food service on campus. He lead and directed an award winning food service for 30 years. So, we think we can say, he knows his way around the kitchen.

When Grandma Colleen was a young mother, she called her Grandpa Wells for some of his recipes. He told her he didn’t really have them written down, so he just relayed them to her over the phone to her with some tips and tricks of the trade. Grandma Colleen still has the paper with her Grandpas recipes and uses them quite often.
