I live in Mobile Alabama with my husband, three great danes, toy poodle, two cats, and two horses. We love animals, couldn't tell could ya? I run my own business in which I have eight employees, we clean crime and accident scenes. I have been in business for 5 years and counting, I love it. We don't have two legged children but we have enough on our plates for now.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make hearty meals for my hubby. He is not picky thank goodness and he is my guinea pig on my new recipes. If he says "you can make this again" that means he loved it. He is honest..... I'll give him that, he tells me when something is just no good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma is typical old south, vegetables, meat, and bread, in that order. She still plants a garden every year.
My cooking triumphs
I mastered the art of making jelly and jams a couple of years ago and love it. I have ventured out in cooking the last 6 or 7 years to try different techniques, and have really enjoyed learning different ways to do things.
My cooking tragedies
I have always loved fudge, decided to give it a shot, well the first year I tried it, I got a recipe off the back of a box of confectioners sugar, turned out great. The next year, same box, same pot, same spoon, fudge failed, 6 times!!!!!!! I haven't tried it again, I couldn't believe it, I still can't believe it, I still shake my head wondering what the heck? I was defeated........ by fudge. :)
