About Us

Disneyland 05-14-012Welcome to our online home!

We are your personal Fuller Brush and J R Watkins Independent Distributors.  My name is Terry (sometimes called the Watkins Lady) and my husband is Doug (sometimes called the Watkins Man).  You may have seen us at a Farmers Market, the County Fair, a show or a Boutique.  We enjoy cooking, entertaining, and sharing healthy living ideas.


Our recipes

I love to collect recipes.  Some were my Mother’s from her notes and cookbooks, some from family and friends, some from the backs of boxes,  magazines, the internet –  and anywhere else I can find them! Vintage, family tested recipes are the best; the yellowed newspaper clippings and handwritten recipe cards are my favorites.
