About me

Occupation Laundress, Cook, Maid, Chauffeur, Baker, Nurse, Counsellor, Teacher, Seamstress, Gardener, Bookkeeper, Executive Officer = MOM
Location Florida, United States
Introduction My grandmother ran a restaurant out of her home in the 1950s. She continued to bake wedding cakes through the 1960s. She ended up as head baker for a school district in the 1970s. My mother has been teaching others to cook, catering weddings and holding amazing dinner parties for decades. Me, well, I am a SAHM mom of 5 that has baked professionally, catered and taught as well. With generations of great cooks behind me, I continue to push my own culinary limits while trying to keep up with the laundry that five kids create. In the process, I am finding ways to save money, make things at home that I would have bought at the grocery store a few years ago, and still create delicious, homey foods.
