A chef's hat is only one of the many hats I wear. Being a mother of 5 of my own children, step-mother to 2, and step-step mother to 8 (I divorced the man, not the kids..lol) and a grandmother to 4, I don't have a lot of time for cooking. I love quick and easy recipes that take little time to fix, but taste like they took forever. The kitchen has always been a place of happy memories. I have baked cookies with my children since they were toddlers. My grandson asks me as soon as he walks in the door, "Can we make salsa, Mamaw?". I am here to share the recipes I have gotten from my mother, friends and a few of my own creations. I love just browsing through some of the fantastic recipes I have found on these pages. My family is really enjoying the new items added to our usual menu. I hope you will enjoy what I have to share as much as I have enjoyed what has been shared with me.
