CA Simonson 

Homemade For Goodness Sake

By C.A. Simonson

C.A. (Candy) Simonson grew up in a small farming community in South Dakota. After leaving home and living in several different cities, it was hard to maintain a garden to grow food. For Candy, homegrown foods are the best, and growing your own food to make recipes like Grandma used to make is the most nutritional. Creating a treat with food, or a design with crafts is what keeps her busy and content. Now retired, she and her husband live in the beautiful Ozarks of Missouri with some acreage and a stocked pond. As avid gardeners, they grow their fruit and vegetables to be preserved for the winter, and forage for other edibles.
