I am a born and raised farm girl from Ohio. I grew up cooking with and later for my Mom when she was busy helping my Dad in the fields. We have a large family, and missing meals was not an option. I really enjoy cooking and recipes. Each year the ladies of the family get together for "cookie weekend" and bake Christmas Cookies. This year we baked 3313 cookies! Over the years, friends and aquaintances have come to look forward to their gifts of cookies. I am married to a wonderful guy who is the pickiest eater, and diabetic. Luckily we host almost all family dinners, so new recipes are not totally lost.
