I've always loved baking and cooking.  The first time I remember baking by myself was at 10 yrs old.  My parents were gone for the day & my brothers were not very entertaining.  So, I pulled out the Bosch and made my first loaf of bread! It turned out so good that I decided to make a pecan pie too. The rest as they say, is history.  I learned early on that when I was baking or cooking yummy food family and friends gathered round and I loved it!  I've continued to learn different methods to make cooking and baking quick and easy.  Allowing me to continue having friends and family near!
