I absolutely love to bake. I try new recipes all the time. I live in Michigan & enjoy it in the Spring, Summer, & Fall. I'm not a fan of the Winter (after New Year's I'm ready for Spring). I love being outside in the warmer months (hiking, walking, camping). I also like movies, football and reading a good book. My favorite cookbook is Better Homes and Gardens - I've had it for years and use it a lot (some pages are so dirty you can hardly read them and the book is falling apart). I try to eat healthy and stay in shape but just like everyone I have my slip-ups & sweets are my weakness.
