I am a mother of two wonderful children who are now pretty much grown. My daughter is 20 years old, married to a Marine and lives in Jacksonville, NC. My son is 17 and still lives at home. My husband is a 9 year Soldier with the US ARMY and has served overseas three times during Operation Iraqi Freedom. I love to cook, especially for other people so it is what I do with most of my free time. I have used Allrecipes.com for several years and it is the best recipe site anywhere. Not only do I use the recipes and enjoy them, the user reviews are a big help!! Thank you to all that submit such great recipes and have given me so many new cooking ideas!
My favorite things to cook
I'm not much of a baker, but I love cooking just about anything and everything. If I had to choose, Italian is one of my favorite type foods to cook. Nothing better than cheese, red sauce and pasta...especially when those are my husbands favorite tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not many traditions in my family. My grandmother was a great cook though, and since her passing in 2004, I have inherited all of her recipes, and I treasure them. I learned most of my cooking the southern way, but I've learned over the years how to change it up quite a bit and can make just about anything.
