Dorothy Kern

I am a wife and mother and amateur baker. I've loved to bake since I was a little girl in my mom's kitchen. I love trying out new recipes or attempting to edit my favorite recipes to fit my mood. The "Crust" has always been my favorite part (whether it's a pie crust or a cookie crust or...you get the idea). Enjoy reading and hearing about all my cooking and baking adventures!
