We are so excited to announce to you that our first cookbook ever will be coming out in the next few weeks.  Some of you have been with me on this website since it was started in 2008.  Many of you have asked time and time again when we were going to publish a cookbook.   Well folks, my dream is coming true!  Our first cookbook with over 150 recipes should be here in the next few weeks.  This cookbook is chocked full of desserts and “Sweet Things”  from cakes to pies and puddings, brownies, cookies and much more.  We are hoping this will be a cookbook you will pass down to future generations and will use every day in your home.  This cookbook is not only for my family but for all the wonderful, loyal fans that are a part of this website. The book will only be available on this site in the beginning and there are limited quantities. Stay tuned…
