Hi! I’m Shelly. I’m a Pennsylvania native who has lived in many places across the US, but has planted myself firmly in northern California since 1995. I’m a tutor, a wife, a mother, daughter, sister and friend who loves to cook and is inspired by my family and friends, among many other things.
I am so excited to start this new BLOG! This project has been simmering in the back of my mind for a while now. I love to write, take photographs, and especially cook….so why not combine them all into one and try something new? My kids are all grown now and I no longer have carpools, track meets or the sudden “2 dozen cupcakes by tomorrow” challenges. So….here we go. My new project… WOODENSPOONS.
The recipes I am going to use on the blog are family, friend, and personal favorites, as well as the recipes that people have asked me for time and time again. Most have started with a basic recipe that I might have had in my collection for years, or that I found online and then tweeked by adding different ingredients, changing amounts, etc…so that I (hopefully) have a recipe we like better.
Anyway, I hope you like it….
