So - a little about me. I'm Jane Frank, and I love to cook! I am a self taught cook, and very very much enjoy experimenting with new foods and cooking with fresh produce. I'm a widow, with a 16 year old daughter. She's a bit of a foodie, too, and she helps me cook and taste - and give her opinion! She takes a lot of my pictures for me - as my hands are full most of the time. Or else they are too dirty to pick up the camera! Enjoy the blog, please give feedback, and give me some hints about what you'd like to see on here! Happy Cooking!
