I am a stay at home mom of 2 children currently taking photographs of families and products. I live in the ‘burbs of St. Louis, Missouri, and hopefully this blog will help teach others wonderful recipes, how to make some things themselves and encourage others to spread the sweets of life. In my previous life, I was a middle school/ high school Drama, Speech and English teacher.
I am posting recipes that have frequently been requested by others. They have all been tested… several times in most cases! I try to include tips that are not found in the original recipes. You will not find funky ingredients in these recipes. I like to keep them simple and something you could take to a pot luck for everyone to enjoy. I try to avoid mixes if possible. Sometimes I have to, but usually I try to make it from scratch to avoid the massive amounts of hydrogenated oils in the Pillsbury log of dough, for instance. You read it and think “Oh my goodness! I ate that as a child??”
I also like saving money… so some recipes will help save you money and hopefully ditch the mix! Money saving tips regarding photography and homemade cards will be thrown in as well.
May God bless you this day.
