Remember the days when everything was homemade....even dinner??? LOL Now were all lucky to once in awhile get a piece of homemade pie or cake..The magic of what "Grandmas" used to do is slowly fading into nothing more than a fond remembrance...Ughhh kind of sad. I know I always admired my grandparents, and my great grandma Mimi for their diligent, crafty, and yes artisinal work they did with food, furniture, and curtains...smile. The lasagna noodles were always homemade...so was the pie crust. The curtains were made on that old Singer sewing machine, and grandpa actually built his own house with his own two hands...OMG.. Actually so did my dad...so he's been able to carry on the family tradition of carpentry...But me...umm I not so sure.. I'd like too. I love all things crafty..I like to bake...but its more of a hobby, then a way of life. Maybe that should change. I want to learn how to make buttermilk biscuits from scratch which I have several recipes for that I've even posted on here in the past.... But right now I have my eye set on some homemade cinnamon rolls....Check it out..
