My love for cooking goes back to the wonderful aromas of freshly baked pies and cookies coming from my Grandmother’s kitchen and the fun that we had cooking together. We always laughed and smiled together as we created yummy treats!
I love to give back to my community and to others … it is a good feeling and always leaves me smiling. I have to thank my family for some of those values. Early days of Red Cross work rolling bandages for field hospitals around the world, 4-H, Girl Scouts, clothing and food drives and the many other things that I have done to help others around me. As a farmer’s daughter, there were always garden vegetables or extra baked goods that were shared with those down the street or at the local nursing home.
