My name is Ashlie Stevens. I am a freelance food and features writer; my work has been featured at The Guardian, Salon, Slate, Paste Magazine, Munchies and is upcoming at Serious Eats. I am working on another piece for Paste that touches on nostalgia in regional cooking and, believe it or not, Velveeta cheese.
While perhaps not the most glamorous ingredient, it definitely has special place in the hearts (and casserole dishes) of many Americans-- and I was wondering if anyone had memories or old recipes that they grew up on that they would be willing to answer a few questions about?
Thanks so much!
