My Miss Grace is my 8 year old grand daughter.  She is a little mama to her seven younger siblings and she loves it.  She loves crafting and LOVES baking.  Hmmm, I wonder where she gets that from.  I saw her recently and she was asking me about Swiss Meringue

I am a visual person and get inspired easily.  My kitchen is bulging at the seams with recipes that I swear I am going to get to.  Then, bam, a new recipe comes along and bumps one down the list.  Now, add Pintrest and other food bloggers I follow to the mix and wow – my plate overfloweth.
