i love cooking, baking, and preserving foods...i like to think outside the box and create or add to a recipe...not all of my ideas workout, but i will keep trying. i teach kids as young as 3 through high school to cook & can. We are award winning at both county & state fairs, with numerous Grand Champion awards. We take it from the garden, to the pantry, and to the table. i cook at kids' camps and love to expose people to different foods that taste good too!
