My mom was an amazing baker and chef. One of the hardest part of her getting Alzheimer's was that I couldn't call her for that quick little bit of cooking advice. I never did find her recipe for apple pie. I set this Big Oven page up for her memorial back in 2008. I'm getting to be a pretty good cook myself, but I'll never have her abilities. I'm "famous" as a computer geek, the lady with the crazy Tervuren on Dog Whisperer, and a mother of triplets instead.
