I live in Western Colorado and work from home as a Medical Transcriptionist. I grew up in Central Florida. I love cooking with our 2 kids and passing along family recipes/traditions.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Southern/soul food. I have a huge collection of Family Recipes and I love making things from my childhood to share with my kids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Memories of visting my grandparents and my grandmother ALWAYS had something from scratch on the stove! She was a wonderful cook and she is dearly missed! My mom was a great cook and could really "scratch" together a meal when times were lean! Sunday breakfast was a tradition with my dad including fried biscuits, eggs, salmon, hash, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Making a cheesecake or having any baked goods turn out at this elevation.
My cooking tragedies
I "attempted" to make beef stew for my husband right after we were married. I decided to use a crock pot but did not brown the beef first. At the end of the cooking time we had a big bowl of veggies and A LOT of grease! YUK! But, bless his heart he tried to choke it down until I threw mine away and then let out a BIG sigh of relief!
