Humble Beginnings

Here is where it all began.
Before venturing to Australia; Su could barely crack an egg without spilling it all over the counter.
She preservered through the hard times.... not knowing where this fun little baking habit of hers might take her.
This is a little snippet of her failures and unforgettable learning experiences she gained from the little kitchen of her rented apartment. They will be cherished forever.
