Cooking has always been my passion since I was a little girl. My mother stayed home with my sister and I and would cook all day long. From making sauces from early in the morning to a wonderful dessert for after dinner, I learned everything I know from my Mom. I now have a family of my own, recently married, and we adopted our dog, Georgia that also loves Mommy's cooking! The three of us really enjoy having our BBQ's and nice dinners at home together. My passion making desserts. Although, I am more of a food person I seem to make desserts that are out of this world. LOL! Recently I sent in a recipe for lemon cheesecake bars to my local newspaper for a bake off and never expected to get a call back and then two months later I did receive a call telling me I was one of there finalists! I went to the bake off with my whole family...not only my parents but also my husband's family went to cheer me on. I never thought in my right mind that I would come in first place. At the award show they went on with the categories and dessert was last. They went through third, then second...and then first. When they called my name I was shocked. I wanted to cry with excitement!!! I walked up to the stage and took my first place prize. I won cooking lessons, tee shirts, and money...the whole nine yards! It was the best experience ever!
