My name is Valerie, I love to cook and collect recipes. Baking is at the top of my list, especially cakes and cupcakes. I probably bake too much, I know I weigh too much so sometimes I try to find healthy versions of baked goods.
I’m always looking for the perfect pound cake recipe and the best cupcake icing. I collect recipes from the internet, magazines, television and friends; my cookbook collection outgrew my bookshelves years ago.
This blog was started to share my cooking adventures with friends. I was posting pictures on Facebook and sharing recipes on a recipe exchange blog. One day I had a light bulb moment – since I already had a blog, why not convert it to a food blog to post and share on my own site. So here we are.
I have a wonderful husband, Fred, two adult daughters, two son-in-laws, two cats and I currently work two days a week. Seems like I have a lot of twos going on.
Besides cooking, I like to read and watch movies. My favorite books to read are murder mysteries and espionage. I would rather watch the Godfather than a chick flick.
I hope you subscribe to my blog and join my adventures in cooking.
