Mom to 4, Grandma to 5 (soon to be 6). Love to cook/bake, spending time with family and family activities. Love to work around the house. Have had a licensed child care in my home for nearly 20 years. Love the little ones! I don't think I'm famous for a particular dish, but love to host the extended family for "special-day" events. You know .... fall festival, fat tuesday, st. patrick's day, cinco de mayo, groundhog day, etc., where I can plan and prepare a themed menu. I love holiday baking, friends and family are all recipients of a platter of 20+ treats at holiday time. I have a few old favorites, but like to try new things every year ... I get many of the recipes here.
