It's all about simplicity!  

Nancy Fuller’s bubbly and warm personality hooked audiences since her first episode of Food Network’s Farmhouse Rules. But before she cooked in front of cameras, Nancy whipped up dishes for her catering business and six children.  She then thought if she “could feed these people, then she could feed other people.”

Though her audience has grown, one thing for Nancy has remained the same: family is everything. In the video above, the chef touches on how she makes the kitchen the heart of the home. Nancy’s biggest recommendation is to “put that table in the center of that kitchen and put your family around it!”

For cooks aspiring to create dishes for family or friends, Nancy reassures viewers that it’s easy to accomplish. When food shopping, take your items home and feel free to experiment. Nancy’s book Farmhouse Rules, has a series of fun, easy and family-friendly recipes for every level of cooking. Crack it open, invite some friends over, and gather in the heart of the home for memories you'll never regret making.
