Jessica Van Eerde is a freelance writer in her spare

family, has lived overseas but did most of her growing up in Arcadia. After meeting and marrying Mike Prescott, she moved to Wauchula in 1979 and now calls it her home. She and Mike raised their three children there and now are reaping the benefits of their labor with four sweet, beautiful grandchildren. As a child, Layne loved watching her mother and grandmother in the kitchen. Her cooking style is eclectic and best described as “Southern comfort cuisine”. Of course her husband says that he made her the “Chef” that she is today. Layne has conducted cooking classes in Punta Gorda and currently teaches a class in Wauchula. She loves to invent and re-invent recipes. Her greatest joy comes from three things: her faith, loving on her family and getting in the kitchen and “whipping” up something good.
