I'm a stay-at-home-Mom of two and full-time college student. I love to cook! I use recipes I learned from my mom and grandmother(s) as well as new ones I find all over.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmothers are (or were) true Southern cooks and I am doing my best to follow in their traditions, although I like to experiment with ingredients and recipes they'd never have.
My cooking triumphs
I have a handful of special recipes that friends and family ask for anytime we're together. My baked beans, dressing, cheesecake, and brownies are my favorites. My all-time-favorite triumph is learning to make real buttermilk biscuits that I know taste just like my grandmother's.
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of any real tragedies, although I've had a lot of oopsies.
