I'm Cindy, a thirty-something wife and mother. I have a lifelong obsession with cooking, but mostly baking. My Dad was an amazing cook and my Mom still is and they both taught me a lot. I love trying new recipes and tweaking them to suit my tastes (or to suit what I have in my pantry and refrigerator.) I love making things up on the fly, too.
My kitchen is the heart of my home. I create our meals there, it's where guests gather, it's warm and inviting. If I was an artist, my kitchen would be my studio.
The things I cook and bake come from a variety of places. I have well over 50 cookbooks, and probably more than that. Plus I have my recipe book (given to me by my mom when I first moved away from home, with all of my family favorites already written down-I've added to it over the years and have just ONE remaining empty page), cutouts from magazines and the internet. I have so many things that I want to try! Plus all my favorites that I like to make again and again!
