So you want to know Who’s That Girl? My name is Marilyn and I come from a small community in Michigan that is surrounded by lakes and trees. It is quiet here and a hike from the hustle and bustle of the big shopping areas. I live with my high school sweetheart (husband) and my second son and his family. Early retirement has been good to us.
You can usually find me in the kitchen checking my pantry and cookbooks looking for the next good thing to bake or rustle up. I have been cooking for over 50 years now. For a short while I studied Culinary Arts. Some friends and I started a catering business. Many of my recipes and images came from those endeavors. There are many recipes here for cooks of all levels. I enjoy quick, inexpensive and down home recipes that satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. I am sure you will find something that will speak to you and your family.
I love anything chocolate, with popcorn or peanut butter. And I am over the top when a recipe includes caramel or candy bars. I enjoy cheese of all types. So if what you are looking for is comfort food you will find that also.
Marilyn’s Treats was born in 2013 while having a marathon session of cookie baking. I hosted a Betty Crocker Toys For Tots Cookie Exchange and realized that all this baking was a bit harder than I remembered! It was much different than the occasional baking and cooking I had been doing for the last 50 years. As I jotted notes, changes, and trials and errors I smiled thinking I needed to share this! Thus, Marilyn’s Treats was born.
