My favorite things to cook
Everything, I learn with each new recipe
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm from the south so it's fried, boiled, baked, and steamed foods.
My cooking triumphs
Each success is a triumph to me. I'm surprised that everyone like what I do. It seems to me anyone can folow a recipe and do the same thing.
My cooking tragedies
"Corn Beef and Cabbage"
The beef was labeled as "Barr Meat". Everyone was congenial but we new that the meat was really tough. You could pull and chew for a long time to even try to eat this stuff.
We had cooked this packaged "Corned Beef" for more than eight hours in the slow cooker (crock pot) but it was really hard to cut or chew.
I did some testing with our gifted "Crock Pot" and found the temperature was not up to standards. We could have cooked that meat for a week and it wouldn't have reached the proper temp.
Our saving grace was the meat had been "cured" before we started "cooking" with a faulty piece of cookware.
The rest of the night vegetarian.
