LaKita Anderson embodies her family's tradition of cooking. "I learned to cook from my mom and grandmother," she recalls. "I remember at age 21, first moving out of my parents' house after college, I only knew how to make hamburgers. But I'd ask my family for recipes and I started practicing and learning new things in the kitchen. That's when my obsession with cooking really started."
With dozens of family recipes written on note cards, LaKita wanted to create a digital archive of all her favorites. So while still working full time in a corporate job, she built her site, Simply LaKita.
