Warm up with a good hot meal!

Hi everyone! Every week I plan to bring you recipes from some of the wonderful cooks who live in our town. I want to give everyone ideas for great meals for the whole family. So I will have a mix of recipes to choose from to keep your whole family wanting seconds! Downeast Maine has some of the greatest cooks I have ever met. Using their skills of living on a budget, they take a few ingredients in the cupboard and transform them into a yummy feast to feed the whole family! I love to cook! Not a day goes by when there isn't something fresh baked in the kitchen! Not to mention I am actually writing a cookbook myself! Since today is only my second day with this blog I am going to share recipes that come from my own kitchen. Most of the recipes I use have been in my family for many years, and they just keep getting better with age.
