My name is Pamela but I am known to many as Grandma Honey.

I am a wife, mother, retired RN, and recipe creator, but the best role of all..GRANDMOTHER to 14 grandchildren. 

I am called by different names;  Grandma Honey, Grandma, Grandma Pam, Pam and HONEY.  Honey started when one of my grand-daughters was around 2 years old and has been one of the favorites.  Thus the name of my BLOG. 

My husband and I have a blended family of 8 children, their spouses, and our 14 grandchildren.  Any family get together that we have is a big event. 

I love to cook and bake with my favorite thing being decorated sugar cookies for all occasions.  I enjoy creating recipes and entering  cooking contests.  I started entering some contests in 2006 and  have won many. I have been lucky enough to be a finalist at the Pillsbury Bake-Off   3 times. 

My passion is spending time in the kitchen with children.  I enjoy teaching them to cook and bake, as well as other kitchen skills.
We create new recipes as well as passing the old family treasures to them.

This creates a lasting bond and special memories. 

I have taught Healthy Snacks Workshops at the WV State PTA Convention.  Last year I had the honor of doing a baking demonstration to the Parkersburg Woman’s Club.  In past years I have done interviews on our local TV and radio station as a Pillsbury Bake-off Finalist.  Sharing my abilities in baking and cooking is an honor.

We are now living in a world of computers, cell phones, i pads and video games that we did not have growing up.  Along with the good things these provide us, they also cause concerns for problems our children/grandchildren face from having these things.

 My grandchildren keep me oriented to the modern world in technology but I like to let them experience good, old fashioned grand-parenting.


To discuss working with me, please contact me.  I am available for recipe creation and brand promotion, sponsored posts, product
reviews, Give-Aways, presentations, and to be a Brand Ambassador.

My Media Kit is available upon request.

  1. OMG. Finally someone from “home” I can relate to. I am from Fairmont, WV and have lived in Florida since 1968. Am so glad I have finally found someone on the internet who loves being a grandparent and cook like me. But most of all you have a website I can actually go to and find recipes “from home”. Being a Pillsbury Bake Off finalist has shown everyone that we Mountaineers really know how to cook and bake. Not just “Hillbillies” that make moonshine. You represent what is so good about us. Food and nurturing. That is what we are taught from birtth. THANK YOU and I hope we can remain email pals.

    1. Oh thank you!!! You are so kind. I love talking to people from WV too. We need to exchange some recipes too. I bet that you have some awesome recipes I have forgotten about. I live in Parkersburg so I’m not far from Fairmont. Been through there many many times going to Morgantown. Let’s keep in touch for sure.

  2. Just found your WebSite, It is FANTASTIC!!!Loved the recipes, just do not know which One to try first, lol.
