My name is Mary Ellen and my husband Bill and I live in Wisconsin. Always being a believer of doing what you love I thought about writing a cookbook but had not put that together as yet. In May of 2014 as I searched for gluten free recipes on the internet I came across some food blogs and I was hooked! I am so excited to start this blog sharing not only recipes, menus, cooking tips and entertaining ideas but some of the funny or heartwarming stories about them. Growing up, no matter what was served on our table, love was always there. My mom enjoyed cooking and taught me so much. My childhood home was open to whoever needed a place to stay or a meal to eat and all were served with love. Bill and I have continued that hospitality and hopefully have served angels unaware.
I am a retired Realtor and have always enjoyed both cooking and baking. Both Bill and I enjoy having friends to our home for dinner as well as entertaining with a variety of parties. Some of our favorites have been Holiday brunches, Irish, German and Italian dinners, Wedding and Baby shower luncheons, and having an open house with a variety of hors d’ oeuvres …. I am looking forward to sharing so much with you!
We have 3 grown daughters and 12 grandchildren. Unfortunately, they all live out of state. We love being together at the same time but that only happens about every 2 years. We were able to spend last Christmas together in Arizona where 2 of our daughters and 8 of our grandchildren live. When we are all together it is chaotic and fun! We take turns cooking for the 19 of us and then we need to use the kitchen table, dining room table and the snack bar to seat us all! When we are not all together, I love being the traveling grandma playing with the kids and enjoy giving my daughters a break from their daily cooking.
I hope you sign up to receive this weekly FREE recipe blog and join me on this journey. I look forward to your feedback both about the blog as well as the recipes so that I continue to share that which you enjoy most…..
