I am a 63 year old widow, mother of 4, grandmother of 7 who loves reading cookbooks and providing treats wherever I go. I have so many favorite recipes handed down from my mother and grandmothers that I use on a regular basis. My kids always loved bringing friends home to dinner, and because of their exposure to many different kinds of food, enjoy anything I serve. I love "tweaking" recipes and adding my own special touch. I especially enjoy baking with my grandchildren and letting them do their own thing because, as I tell them all, "when you are coloring or baking, anything goes.....that is what is so great about creating"
