Welcome to A Camera & A Cookbook! I’m Lysha, pronounced Lee-sha or like Lisa with a “SH” sound in stead of “SSS” sound. (Whoa! that was the teacher in me). I used to blog over at MagnoliaMom.Com, but felt an overwhelming feeling to start anew in Fall 2014. I’ve been blogging for over 10 years and so much has changed with the blogging world. I am so glad you’re here and I would love for you to hang out awhile. Be sure and say Hi and I will reciprocate if you leave your blog address.

For those of you who know me in real life may know my kids by a different name. No, they haven’t decided to go by a different name or anything like that. I choose to use nicknames on here, just because I’m paranoid.
