Story

I Like to Bake and Cook Blog
Introduction
         
                 
Welcome!  I Like to Bake and  Cook Blog was started in 2011 when it was suggested to me through several people that I should start a food blog.  I always loved to bake and cook so it seemed natural that sharing family recipes as well as creative newbies that I developed on my own might be of interest to fellow foodies. Young and old alike are always looking for menu suggestions and easy recipes.  I try to simplify my mom's and grandmother's recipes for easy everyday baking and cooking.  Hopefully you'll continue to visit me in my kitchen and home where I feel most comfortable with pots and pans surrounding me.
