I'm a mother of two sons and a grandma with 3 grand-daughters. I started cooking as a young girl with my mom and grandmother. One of the first things I remember making were tortillas. Every year my family would tell me to enter my baked goods in the New Mexico State Fair. In 1990 I finally decided to enter the cookie contest and was very surprised that I win three blue ribbons. After that I entered my pies, breads, cakes and cookies every year until I became ill with Lupus. I still cook at home and teach my grand-daughters to cook. I believe what you make with all your heart n soul is made with LOVE and should be shared with the ones you LOVE.
