I am truly a Texan. I have lived in the same small town all of my life. I live in an old Victorian house that was built in 1882. Living here is like stepping back in time to another era. It has always been a dream of mine to write a cookbook. Cooking has always been my hobby. I have always loved cooking, and experimenting with recipes, and making my own recipes. I especially love to do decorative cooking. My specialty is baking. I live life to the fullest, and enjoy every beautiful day that is given to me. Life is exciting down here in Texas I have many hobbies. I design, and sew clothes, which is fun. I also do decorative sewing, and monogramming, which I give for gifts. I also love to oil paint landscape scenes, flowers, and animals for relaxation. I studied Interior Decorating at Kings College in London, England. I really enjoy decorating in every aspect of my life.
