My name is Shelly Dowell and I live in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky, land of horses and bourbon. I'm originally a northerner but have adopted the slower pace down south. I will always like my chicken noodles served over mashed potatos, I will never be a drinker of  "sweet tea" but I am happy to call Kentucky my home.

I love to cook and paint and cook and eat and paint and cook and paint and eat. In that order.

Thanks so much for spending some of your time visiting my blog! I hope you will be a regular and don't forget to comment and say hi!
