I'm a newlywed southern gal with a passion for cooking and baking from scratch.
I have a fun blog full of retro recipes and heirloom dishes that you can find at www.vintagevictuals.blogspot.com - I hope you will check it out!
My favorite things to cook
I'm a baker at heart, so I love nothing better than making a nice tall chocolate layer cake with chocolate icing! Maybe a scoop of homemade ice cream on the side? Yes please!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love family recipes!!! I truly believe that cooking brings families together. In terms of my favorites, there are just too many to list here, but you can check out my blog, which chronicles many of the heirloom recipes from my family - the url is above.
My cooking triumphs
I am most proud of making my Auntie Gladys's chocolate yule log - you can find the recipe on my blog, url above.
My cooking tragedies
My greatest cooking tragedy is that I don't have more recipes from my great grandmother - my mom's mom's mom - Nana. She was a legendary baker in our family, but she passed away just a few months after I was born.
