I don't see any error except your spelling of "homemade" (which I think was just a typo). I do think the whole thing is too long for one sentence, however, and I suggest breaking it into two sentences, starting the second sentence with "her brother."

needs a comma after the introductory phrase "Three hundred years ago" -- http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/commas.htm (see #3)
