Read our answers to the random questions 
given to us by Katherine~

Turnips 2 Tangerines 
is a food blog that shares fast, easy and affordable recipes... 
Recipes that anyone, of almost any age, can make. 
(children will need a parent supervision)
Here at Turnips 2 Tangerines, 
we have an extensive list of recipes.
There is a recipe for everyone~

Many of our recipes could be considered "Retro" recipes.
"Retro" because they come from my childhood...
having been passed down to me by my grandma and my mom.
Recipes that may have been forgotten about over the years.

I started Turnips 2 Tangerines,
almost 4 years ago as a way to preserve these recipes...
to write them down, keep them in a safe place..
so someday my grandchildren will be able to make these recipes
here at grandma's "online kitchen".....Turnips 2 Tangerines.
Now sit back and relax,
Enjoy a Lemon Chia Scone with
Honey-Lemon Drizzle.
Enjoy your scone with a cup of hot tea or coffee and
Take a look at the "Between the Lines" Blogging Series~
