Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Julia Usher

Sometimes the pull of the kitchen, the love and memories of one’s childhood, and a desire to do what you love is so strong that it lures you away from a successful career, complete with graduate degrees and status. I write these words, not about me BUT of Julia Usher, baker and author of Cookie Swap.

Spend an hour hearing Julia share her story....how the influences of her Mom, grandmother and great grandmother, and of her Dad’s work ethic, all combine to provide Julia with a varied and interesting life full of family, cooking, education, engineering, consulting, wedding cake making and now inspiring others to bake and share through her gorgeous book, Cookie Swap: Creative Treats to Share Throughout the Year.

I can’t wait to have a cookie swap party!! Thank you Julia and I look forward to your cake and cookie decorating book.
