Hi, Deborah. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you’ve already started finding your way around the site, and I hope you’ll share stories and recipes—maybe for your cornbread?—with the HOMEGROWN community by posting in our member blog, The Stew. Re-posing from your own website is A-OK with us. If you’ve ever  got a question, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment or shoot me a message. I’m so glad you found us and I hope you’ll feel right at home!
