“Look Who’s Cooking” spotlights successful home cooks in our area. Today, we meet Shirley Hudgins.
Name: Shirley Hudgins
Place of residence: Roanoke
Occupation: Retired nurse
Nominated by: Friend Donna Turner, who wrote: “I call Shirley Hudgins the Martha Stewart of the South. Her cookies and breads are so perfect it is like a machine makes them. At Christmas she makes over 100 cakes as gifts. Everything she makes is super healthy but doesn’t taste like it.”
Why I love to cook: It gives me a sense of pride, and I find it relaxing. I enjoy cooking for others and making dishes I know they enjoy. My four grandchildren love Nana’s cooking.
