I come from an incredible couple that went against all odds to be together. A runaway slave and a Morman missionary's daughter. I've just personally come through 3 years of fighting back from being beaten up on the job several times to the point of becoming near agoraphobic and a shut in. I'm now reclaiming my strength, spirit, and life. After that experience I realized if my life was worth living it was worth living the way I want to live it. I work on my writing and have since developed a desire to create and learn to cook recipes of my choosing instead of running to fast food joints when I'm stressed. I've started losing the weight I've gained from the 3 years on disability and hiding from the world. So I'm exploring all those items I've always wanted to make or work with. I created my own sourdough starter from scrach that I hope someday to pass on to my children someday when I have them. I'm going to create my signature recipes that I'll leave as a legacy to them, which is why I'm here.
