I live in Southwestern Michigan about a half mile from the Lake Michigan Shoreline. I like to take sunset pictures and usually have some of my photos on my website. I enjoy cooking and especially like baking. Pies are my strong point as I can make a very tasty pie dough. I love the "vintage heirloom" recipes and try to keep making things my mother made when I was young. My favorite cookbook is the "Antoinette Pope School Cook Book", 1957 Macmillan Company.
