I have 2 grown children and am a grandma of 4 (3 boys & 1 girl). I also have 2 cats, a Significant Other and his dog, a black Pomeranian (Belle Starr). At an early age, my mother taught me to bake and cook. Not only did she make her own bread every week, she also made a big evening meal every day. She was German and really knew her way around a kitchen! I'm very thankful for her guidance which has turned me into a pretty darn good cook!
