I am the lucky to live in the mountains of western North Carolina. I am a married mom of 2 and step-mom of three. I love to garden and can. I've been collecting cookbooks since I was 7!. I still have my first one that I got from my Nonna. Now that I have millions of recipes at my disposal I don't buy many cookbooks anymore. I do love 19th century homemaking books that makes me grateful for the times in which we live.
