Keith Summers, now an O'ahu anesthesiologist, had two other ideas to enrich their home lives: they'd have no TV and they'd cook from scratch and eat together as a family every day.
Kathy, who hadn't done much cooking in her growing-up years, gulped and agreed. "I made an awful lot of funny things until I learned to cook," she admits.
Today, the Summers have nine children — ages 26 to 41 — 24 grandchildren, and three more on the way. There is a TV in the house, but no broadcast connection; they watch videos if they watch at all.
And Kathy has become a skilled from-scratch cook and baker. Especially a bread baker.
