I live in Baton Rouge, LA. Here in southern Louisiana, our world revolves around food. If we're happy, we eat; if we're sad, we eat; it goes on & on... I love cookbooks from small country churches because I know that recipes have been made over & over, time after time, with love and definitely great. In the real 9-5 world, I work in a commercial real estate appraisal firm. I'm finishing up my state certification. But my passions lie in the kitchen and in the craft room.
