About Sandi

I was born on a farm in 1946 nearby a little town called Frederick, South Dakota. Frederick only had approximately 500 + people who lived there, so every Saturday we had to drive to Aberdeen. South Dakota which was about a 30 minute drive each way to do all of our shopping for the week.

I have always loved cooking. My mother was a wonderful mentor as she always loved cooking and baking and showed me how to do it too. Her specialty was baking.

When I was old enough to read, I started cooking making my own food from recipe books. My first cookbook was a Mary Allen Junior cookbook. I made every recipe in the book and graduated with a certificate at the age of 10 years old. That cookbook was given to my granddaughter, Brie, when she was 10 years old.
