Marsha is a local author who has turned her experience in the kitchen into a writing career. As stated in her personal blog, “I love food and everything about it. Cooking is definitely a learning process and I'm still learning and loving every minute in my kitchen. I have a drive that is satisfied by creating food.” This drive has led to several of Mrs. Baker’s recipes being published in "American Profile" which inspired her to write her first cookbook, "Recipes and Recollections." She also writes a monthly food column for the "Leader Enterprise" and has her own personal food blog at http://www.thebetterbaker.blogspot.com.
