Hey @CathyF, Welcome to Sincerely Food, we're so glad you're here! I'm with you, I LOVE to cook and bake, and as the mother of four LARGE boys, I do a LOT of it! And these days, with how crazy things are getting, I'm starting to thing that shopping the sales has replaced baseball and yard sailing as the national past time! 😂
But on a more serious note, tell me what kinds of things do you like to bake? As a bizzy woman (and Gads, I'm bizzier than ever these days), as much as I LOVE to bake fancier things (4 layer cakes with wonderful filling, homemade cinnamon buns, croissants etc.) I'm really happy to throw in a tray of 5 ingredient brownies, or cheesecake -a little more time consuming, but still simple- and call it a day. And my very favorite recipes are the simple ones that make me look like a "Kitchen Goddess"! ❤️
