Cooking and baking has always been a huge part of my life. I am so thankful that my mother took the time to teach me when I was young. Since I have moved on and am now cooking for my family I often go back to the foods familiar to me as a child. I also like to try new things though, sometimes it ends up in the trash but most of the time it turns out pretty good. Cookbooks are not really my thing, I might check them out for and idea but then I usually turn it into my own. Cooking on a budget has its challenges but I think if anything it has helped me become a better cook. I hope the recipes you find here either become a staple for you and your family or one that you will enhance and make your own. I will also have non-edible recipes in here for crafts and such. Bon Appetite and have fun crafting!!
