Hi. I'm Patricia and welcome to ButterYum.
Let's see, what can I tell you about myself. I’ve been blogging here in my Northern Virginia home since 2009, I'm of British and Italian decent, I’m the mother of 4 young adults, and I've been married to my wonderful husband for more than 30 years. I grew up with a dream of attending culinary school. That dream was put on hold when I married and started a family, but I didn’t let that stop me - I took matters into my own hands and taught myself to cook and bake from scratch. With the exception of a few recipes by my daughters (little butteryum and butteryum jr), all the recipes on this blog were cooked, baked, styled, and photographed by me. Welcome to my kitchen!
