I am, dare I say it, a middled aged Texan. I dabble in the kitchen, mostly cooking tried and true Texas meals...but love to get recipes from my magazines and give them a try. And usually on my Baptist Church potluck nights!
My favorite things to cook
Venison is my new thing. Having married a good ole Texas hunter and fisherman in 2007, I now have a freezer full of South Texas Deer and freshwater and coastal fish! SO I am half way their with my 2010 New Years Resoultion to eat more healthy
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving stuffing, fruit salad, home made green bean casserole. COMFORT FOODS =)
My cooking triumphs
In my first marriage, my mother-in-law made the most fabulouse stuffing...without a recipe, from her memory. It took me a couple of years (I was married to her son for 20 years), but I finally got all the ingredients down on paper and refine it to taste, with LOTS of success the last 4 years.
My cooking tragedies
Tuna tetrazini....need I say more....ended with a meal at McDonald's be more prefered, and that says it ALL....MCDONALDS! For heavens sake!
