About me: I have always liked to cook, particularly breads, fruits, vegetables, vegetarian, poultry and lamb dishes. After marriage we cooked together progressively more difficult dishes with him doing the meat, grilling and frying, and I did the "dough" and the same type of things I had before. After children we started cooking more simply. After discovering the cause of my frequent migraines was an evolving long list of chemicals and odd ingredients, I began getting back to cooking from basic ingredients, and found I could be well again. I also try to cooking from what I can get in season at the ever present fruit and vegetable stands.

Baby Booties : page 92

I make two dozen cupcakes which will yield 16 booties for a baby shower. I cheat by using canned frosting which I color pink or blue and after the crumb coat, cover the booties with little stars with a decorators tip. (So I skip the coconut.) This time I made chocolate cupcakes and covered them with chocolate frosting, making brown booties. Since it was a double shower for the father of a baby boy and the mother of a baby girl, I put little blue stars and blue shoes laces on half of the booties and pink on the other half. It was a real conversation starter, and as we had guys there too, they were not shy about eating them up.
