Baking is my sanity...  and with 3 toddlers underfoot, I do a lot of it.  If I'm not cooking or baking for my family and friends, you can usually find me stocking my freezer for just-in-cases.

I love sharing a treat and coffee with my friends.   Come on over, push aside some toys, have a seat, a hot cup and a hug!
