I am a wife and mother and Nana. Before all of those things, I believe in God. He comes first in my life. I'm easy to get along with and love meeting people, having people over and cooking up a big meal with lots of laughs and good times.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking soups and stews in the winter with bread and salads. Authentic Mexican and Italian dishes are awesome. Good ol' southern dishes are great. I'm open for whatever whenever the mood strikes me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, I would sit in the kitchen and watch my mom cook. It's amazing the things I learned just watching. During the holidays, I'd go to my Grandma's and help her prepare dinner for our family...sometimes there would be over 100 people there and it was great. My earliest memories of cooking were of me standing at the stove on a chair, helping stir the gravy and frying eggs. Long before I was in school. I don't remember not cooking.
My cooking triumphs
My first turkey. My first cake. My first Thanksgiving Dinner!
My cooking tragedies
The terrible meringue tragedy...ugghh!! It's definitely gotten better since the first time!
