Busy theatrical family shares cooking duties, too

Lara Emerson’s life began in the state of Washington but being in a military family and marrying a military man there have been many states across this nation she has called home. “But we have lived in Gloucester for a longer period of time than in any of the other towns, cities and countrysides where the family has resided. Mark, my husband, retired from his position at the Milford Haven Coast Guard Station In Mathews in 2014. It was then we made Gloucester our new home.”

Lara and Mark have seven children from ages 27 to 15 so there has been a lot of cooking in the Emerson household over the years.

Although learning how to bake from her grandmother, “A good baker who raised me.
