Daughter of Kentucky born and raised parents. I did not step foot in a grocery store until I was 10 years old, didn't even know there was such a thing. If we did not raise it ourselves or barter for it we did not eat it. (Except at church of course)
My favorite things to cook
OMG!Pork Steaks w/sweet onion gravey, mashed potatoes, mustard greens,cornbread and home made pickles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern, right down to my big bottom!!!
My cooking triumphs
Introducing folks to the finer points of Southern cooking. Watching their faces go from mistrust to, "OMG" when tasting a dish they have never dared to try. i.e. Fried apples, southern cooked yellow summer squash, chicken gizzards w/dumplings, etc.
My cooking tragedies
Setting the oven on fire when the bottom of the foil pan tore out of Thanksgiving turkey.
