Finally, I have an avatar….no it is not one of my baked goods.  That photo is my grandmother.  I mentioned her in this thread re: what got me started scratch baking. 
http://www.realbakingwithrose.com/index_ee.php/forums/viewthread/1938/P0/

I skimmed thorugh that thread again…grandmother was a very common theme.  I just think Grandmom was the best baker in the world.  She was a fabulous grandmother!!  I was fortunate enough to know my four grandparents.  Grandmothers are just the best.

My grandmothers didn’t bake; one of them lived on frozen TV dinners. My mother, unfortunately, inherited her culinary skills, which warped my childhood. grin

That is so sweet CRenee. That is the perfect avatar, a tribute to your grandmother.  My grandmother down east was an amazing cook/baker.  Doing it all on an old fashioned wood stove until about 1980 when she became ill.  I have very fond memories of her and her baked goods.

Ahhh, grandmothers!  Nice tribute to have her as your baking muse and Avatar smile

I had a grandmother who was not only a wonderful person, but an amazing baker of pies, named my daughter after her.  Everyone in my extended family thinks of her pies so fondly and wistfully, their faces sort of glaze over and get dreamy when the subject comes up.

@Charles, you are too funny!  Glad to see you are learning the craft yourself, even without ancestral inspiration. smile

I’ve never met you CRenee, but I know you must be a beautiful woman because your grandmother is a beautiful woman!
