Hello from the Bluegrass State! I was raised in the Buckeye state, spent time in the Great Lakes state, Hoosier state, and now live in KY. I have a great family and a neurotic dog and many people I call friends and I love them immensely. I am a freak of a sports fan, with hockey being my favorite (Go Pens!), learned to play hockey when I was 40, and started the first ever all women's league in Louisville. I really enjoy cooking but especially enjoy baking. I am an amateur but want to share my enthusiasm! The boozing comes from the fact that I love a good cocktail sometimes while I am baking! So join me on my journey to explore recipes and techniques and sharing with others. As Julia Child once said, ""This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook—try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun."
