    My story, I met the love of my life when I was 16 and two years later we were married. When we first got married I was not much of a cook, I would buy so many cook books and try recipes over and over again until it would turn out. I never gave up and my husband can tell you I had my share of bad cooking. The more I practiced the better I got. Now we are going on 10 years of happily married. I love to cook and create my own recipe also became a baker, I have also taken interest in doing home design and decor. In my blog I would love to share with you the recipes I create, recipes I find and love to share also tips for home decor and ideas.
