My mother had to go back to work when I was 14, so it became my responsibilty to cook for our large family of 8. I am now a mother of three boys and the kitchen is our family room.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake with the kids. I also enjoy making Indian cuisine, homemade things that most people buy in jars and boxes like; granola bars, salad dressings, stuffing and chicken nuggets. I prefer the healthy but flavorful versions made from scratch. I'm a southern girl so I love to make fried fish and chicken, collard greens and pecan pies. Macaroni and cheeses and sweet potato casserole are two dishes I am known for. Also I have three children so anything I make that's cooked in one pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Green eggs and ham for Easter brunch. Homemade stuffing for the holidays. Homemade biscuits and chocolate gravy for Christmas breakfast.
