I have always enjoyed cooking, since I started making mashed potatoes for our family dinners at the age of 10. My cooking style is throwing together what is simple, fresh and tasty, also preparing tried and true family recipes. I am on a quest for that perfect crusty bread that is simple to make for the home cook. I am an avid collector of all things vintage, I make up "vignettes" daily for fun and love to share my decorating ideas with everyone. When I'm not working, cooking and decorating I love to be with family, friends, my horses and my two french bulldogs, so stop by here often, there will always be something new to look at. Tammy
