I love to cook and I love to bake even more. Obviously growing up here in Lancaster County (PA Dutch Country), I come from a long history of women who were homemakers with many children and cooking and baking were MANDATORY every night. 3 course meals with freshly baked desserts were staples every day growing up in my family. I, on the other hand, am a busy, professional, business owner with very long/late hours. I try to make as many homemade meals as possible but it is very difficult with my work schedule. In this neck of the woods, most recipes we grew up on and love are all stored in the mind only, no paper trails to be found. There are so many recipes I've gathered from watching my mom cook & bake over the years that are consider comfort food to me that I must take the time to write down the measurements so I can share them with all of you. I feel it's the least I can do after all of the wonderful new recipes I've obtained from everyone here. I just love to try new recipes and experiment with new ingredients.
