Susan Bernadette was a wonderful cook, taking after her famous mother, Bernadette (Mrs. P.). She would create magical floral designs by day, paint beautiful fruit still lives on a whim, and can the perfect pickles by night. A woman of many talents, with a heart of gold, a green thumb, and a rainbow of colors in her cupboards!
