I love to bake and send some lovin' from my kitchen to all my friends during the Holiday Season. As my name implies, I am a great fan of good recipes - the more, the better!
My favorite things to cook
I learned to cook "Southern" - collard greens, pinto beans, baked sweet potatoes, pork roast, green beans, mashed potatoes, squash, butter peas and cornbread. Prime Rib on New Years Eve!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Visiting my grandmother - spreading some Sunbeam white bread with mayo and topping it with home-grown peeled & sliced tomato. A little salt and a lot of pepper are all we needed to finish off a perfect memory.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my Aunt's recipe for Buttermilk Candy!
My cooking tragedies
Terrible burn on 3 fingers when I did the "bounce back" test to see if my quick-bread was done - I forgot that part of the final topping contained brown sugar!
