I'm Lynne and I blog at 365 Days of Baking & More. I'm married and we have three children, two daughters ages 22 and 20, and a son who is 17. My blogging journey began in January 2011 to challenge myself while being a full-time mom. By doing so, I've found my passion, discovered what I want to be when I grow up, and increased my kitchen skills. I've fallen in love with the whole experience! My goal with 365 is to excite you with food and move you into the kitchen if you aren't already there. It's fun, delicious and can be quality time spent your family as you cook and bake together, and then enjoy what you've made around the family table. I look forward to having you join me in the kitchen!
