Another New Kid on the Block


I'm another new kid on the block and wanted to say HELLO!

I'm the Brownie Lady, aka Vanessa. I love in beautiful Williamsburg, VA and have 3 teenagers (ALL boys!). I love to cook but I'm nothing great. For the most part. I just follow recipes and tweak them a little to suit our tastes. Occasionally I make up a recipe and when it's good, I get very excited! I'm here to learn form you all, but can't promise being very active as I am a single mom of those 3 boys AND I home school them, so my time is very limited.

When I'm not transporting someone to work or teaching, I'm in the kitchen which gives me much needed calm and peace.

I'll probably spend most of my time here (at first) just reading, but I look forward to posting as well.

Vanessa (Brownie Lady or just BL for short!)

Good morning.
I'm surprised at the time of your post.
Very early! Or late!
Thanks for joining, with all you have to do.

Well, I'm not normally posting that early/late but we had been out late to a friend's house for the 4th and I was in my "wind down" mode. :-)
