I have been told that people think I am an excellent cook. Well, I am here to tell you I wasn't born lucky like my brother who can fix or build anything.(He gets upset when people call him lucky because he is so accomplished at many things)I learned everything I know about cooking, baking and creating good things to eat from my Mom and my wonderful Mother-in-law. Thanks to them I love to cook although I don't do that every day anymore since I am widowed but I do bake several times a week for special friends and special occasions at work. I just discovered Just a Pinch last year and love it.
