I grew up in North Carolina but within the past year moved to Rochester Mn with my husband. He does 99% of the cooking and is good at it, but sometimes I like to get in the kitchen and get my hands dirty, too!
My favorite things to cook
I love southern cooking, usually the greasier the better. However, since my digestive tract does not work as good as it used to, i have been trying to eat healthier. I LOVE greens with ham, ham and bean soup, mac and cheese, beef stew, home baked bread. I am interested in recipes that are inexpensive, relatively easy, and yummy. I really like comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, my mom was not the best cook in the world, but God knows she tried. However, she always made the best stuffed green peppers and wilted lettuce salad, and i have not been able to duplicate that.
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I have, with the purchase of a Zojirushi bread machine, ventured into the world of breadmaking with surprising success! Since we bought this handy gadget, we have not bought store bought bread in almost a year, and it is so rewarding and delicious.
My cooking tragedies
The biggest tragedy is that I can't cook more often
