Midwest farm girl at heart. Grandmother of 3. Married to a wonderful man. Retired Pediatric RN. Love to cook and bake. Cooking is not only an expression of my passion, but also a stress reliever. Baking is the best stress reducer. Love to prepare new recipes and meals for family and friends. Usually cook from scratch 5-6 nights a week. Always looking for that new recipe. I have been collecting cook books for 30 years and still enjoy going through my books for ideas.
