|The kitchen was the one place you would most likely find Laurie. Big celebrations or private conversations, Laurie’s kitchen was where you wanted to be. The oldest of four children Laurie began cooking for herself when she was twelve and was soon preparing meals for her family, often experimenting with new recipes. Sadly, Laurie passed away unexpectedly at the age of 38. Her family's business honors her with this line of soup mixes that she would be proud to call her own.
