My Favorite Recipes: Chris Bryant has never given up

Chris Bryant
Johnson City, Tenn.

Never give up has been my motto for years.

When I was in high school, I kept trying to get in art classes. I never could get in so I took four years of home economics. This turned out to be a blessing since I got married young. When growing up, I spent the summers with an aunt. She was a great cook. I learned a lot from her, my mother, Mama Bryant and my lady friend, Carrie Freichel, who lived to be 98. Carrie helped me a lot with pies and candy. Carrie and I took dishes to neighbors, church and our art league. Those were fun times and we never gave up. Even though Carrie and I had physical problems we had to keep going. We tried to help others and make them happy.

I’m a 21 year volunteer at our Senior Center. I make cakes and dishes and take them down there. Quick and easy dishes are what I like to do best. I just had a cookie recipe published in the Southern Living Magazine August issue. I love cooking and trying new recipes.

I lost my husband, Bernard, of 48 years, five years ago. Three weeks after he was gone, I was diagnosed with cancer. I went through two surgeries and radiation. People prayed for me and with God’s help, I never gave up. Today, I’m cancer free.

I have been a fine artist for years, after taking classes and workshops. God has been so good to me and walks with me every day.

I’m thankful for two children, three grandchildren and one great-grandson, Noah, who is 5 months old.
