Wondering MamaHowDoI?




MamaHowDoI?

I've got kids and grandkids as well as their friends who ask me all kinds of questions, some I can answer and some I can't.

Do you have a problem? Can't find an answer?

Can't find a Recipe?

Google
 

Or maybe you are looking for a recipe that you don't see on this site.

Do you have a recipe you'd like to submit to this site?

Well, this is the place to ask your questions.

Now just remember that I can't guarantee that I'll always have an answer...Mama doesn't know everything!

Warm Dishes,
