a little something about gail…Gail Aug 2012

Welcome to Flour Patch Creations, a site dedicated to savoring life’s simple pleasures and letting your creativity bloom!  I live on the East Coast of Virginia with my talented husband and two adorable Dachshunds, Grace and Oliver.  My two grown sons no longer live at home, but I still cook their favorite dishes every chance I get.  My culinary adventures began in home economics class in junior high school where I quickly learned I was better at cooking than sewing.  I also realized I liked preparing a recipe as much as I liked devouring it.  I continued my culinary pursuits as a hobby and eventually attended school to hone my skills further.  My love of creating things from scratch has led me to other hobbies as well, such as gardening and DIY projects.  I look forward to sharing with you and learning from you as we create things that make life just a little sweeter.

My favorite quote:

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

J.R.R. Tolkien
