Born and raised in South Carolina, I am a Southern girl at heart. I enjoy trying new recipes all of the time even though they don't always turn out well. I enjoy cooking for my husband, family, and friends.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are appetizers/tapas. I also love the way food turns out after being in the slow cooker, however I'd rather cook because I can't really be involved in the cooking process.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition involves my mother and Christmas Eve. Every Christmas Eve, we put on a big spread of all things appetizers for our family and we have so much fun doing it!
My cooking triumphs
I have just mastered making homemade gravy just like my father! I also have opened up my husband and stepson's mind to many different foods that they thought they hated!
My cooking tragedies
I recently put a delicious new chicken recipe in my crock pot after working 3rd shift. When I woke up 8 hours later, I did not smell anything cooking. Little did I know, the element in my crock pot had blown and I had to throw away $20 worth of ingredients!
