I am a mother of three sons, been married for almost 24 yrs. I learned to bake and cook from my mom. Now that my sons are older and two have moved out I don't have to cook huge meals anymore but now that I'm working full time while my husband goes to nursing school that's what I do to relax on my days off. It was also my solace during my mothers onset of dementia and through tough times with her. I threw myself into making a new soup every night or so.
