Let's see. I am almost a 40 something auntie to 4 of the best danged children in the whole world. Not that I am at all biased... I love to cook. My goal in life is to have a kitchen that Alton, Emerril or Paula would walk into and and say, "hey, this is pretty nice. I want my kitchen like this..." I have a very close knit family which is why some of my recipes may look a little strange. If my recipes look more like a letter to a friend than a conventional recipe that is because this is where I am storing the family recipes for the four above mentioned nieces and nephews. My recipes are written to and for them with notes and special referrences regarding the times we made and shared the item listed.
