Mom of one beautiful daughter, four great dogs and a sweet rescued cat. I have a great job which allows me to travel (and eat!) regularly. God has blessed me with a great husband, a nice home and an overall wonderful life.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken and dumplings (from scratch), all kinds of soups and stews, fish, fresh bread, kids' dishes, slow cooker meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried chicken, red velvet cake, sweet potato souffle, turkey and dressing, slow cooked pot roast, biscuits and gravy, cornbread, soup beans, cheesy potato soup.
My cooking triumphs
Cranberry stuffed pork roast to complete a Thanksgiving Feast at a table with which Martha Stewart would have been pleased!
I also mastered homemade buttermilk biscuits with sawmill gravy after years of practice runs.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention! My poor husband bears with my weekly attempts at new / invented dishes! Of course, I cooked my first turkey with the bag of giblets still inside, and as a real rookie, tried to cook frozen chicken breasts without thawing!
