Grew up in St. Augustine, Fl. Then I moved to the NYC area and ordered delivery every night for five years. Now that I'm in Virginia, and have a lot more free time I have started cooking.
My favorite things to cook
chicken, sweets, anything with garlic
My favorite family cooking traditions
Granny's French Salad Dressing
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon salt
pinch or 2 of pepper
1/4 cup vinegar
1 cup of olive oil
Put slits in garlic cloves or half them to let the flavor out.
Add salt,pepper,vinegar,and oil.
Add parsley,basil,paprika,ect. if you want. May change to your taste,like using 1/3 cp vinegar,or different amount of salt,or no pepper,usually use a ratio of 1/4 amount of vinegar to 1 of oil.
