    I love the name Rileigh Brynn for a little girl. For a boy, Noah Mason! Why, that’s the names of my kiddos! I’m a bit biased.

    My favorite cookbook is one my Mother’s church actually prnted. Random I know but, I’m from the south and now live in AZ. I love to get recipes from this book. It takes me home and my children get to experience “Soul Food”.ReplyCancel

    Oh, new babies! I LOVE new babies, which is good, since I take pictures of them. 🙂 All I’ve had for the last few months has been boys though!

    Favorite baby names….hmmm. I always wanted to name one of our girls Ava, and my husband absolutely refused. 🙂 And I really like Liam as well. And…well, I could go on. 🙂

    Congrats on the new grandbaby!ReplyCancel

My fav names are Alexandra,McKenzie,Warrick,Ryker,Matix,Arianna,and Ryder, 7 grandbabies so far and they are each as unique as thier names,blessings each and everyone.So I am ready to get off my butt and bake somemore new recipes if I win or dont win the cookbook. The first two granddaughters I am teaching to sew and bake,has been a process since they were about 2 pulled the chair up and started teaching them to mix cookies and roll out the dough,sewing started when they were 6 and 9. They are now 10 and 13 and are very good lil cooks. The boys at this point only like to decorate cookies the oldest Warrick has Asbergers and Dushane Muscluar Dystrophy, next one down is 4then a 3 yr old and the last 2 are ten days apart and are only 1. But they will get thier time in the kitchen also. It is such a joy to teach them to cook and bake.ReplyCancel

  • Karin - 10/01/2012 - 8:54 pm

    Congratulations from your newest follower! I’ve just stumbled onto your lovely website through your fabulous brownie recipe – it’s almost EXACTLY like the one I used when I was growing up!!! Your path sounds a lot like mine – I had free reign to cook, as long as I cleaned up. A good thing, too, ‘cuz my mother had no clue! So, as long as I cooked, we all ate (which is still the way!)

    Favorite girl name? I’ve always (ALWAYS) been partial to Sarah Michelle. No idea why, I don’t know any & don’t have any, but that name just seems to flow nicely.

    Favorite cookbook? Have to go with good ole Betty Crocker, with the red plaid cover….have had that since I was a teen (waaaaay too many years ago).

    Thanks for the chance to win one of YOUR faves…..ReplyCancel
