I live in Central Illinois. I am a bank teller, getting ready to retire after 30 years, this coming spring.

Love to garden, bake and play the fiddle/ violin ( just learning)

 

I love baking and eating breads. Enjoying this site, trying new recipes. After some 45 years off cooking, I am getting bored with the same old stuff!
