I am so glad you are here and welcome to my food blog! I love sharing recipes tried and true, old and new with you. I have been cooking and baking, researching, learning, taking lessons, and loving it all since I was about 12! What good is keeping favorite recipes and techniques all to yourself? I believe in sharing, and I guess that "once a teacher always a teacher" phrase is me! So thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy the recipes and the little stories that go with them! My husband Bill is the photographer and my biggest food fan and critic! I look forward to answering your questions and comments! :)
