I am married and have one wonderful daughter. I have been cooking since I was a teenager and now I am passing on the family tradition to my 12 year old daughter. We have fun times in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love great southern cooking. I'm always experimenting and trying new cuisines. I love to create new foods and surprising my family with fun creative meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking tradition was making Christmas cookies with my Mom.
We were famous for our Santa Claus cookies and now I am passing on the tradition to my daughter. It is not Christmas until we bake our special treats.
My cooking triumphs
For Thanksgiving I made a pumpkin butter gooey cake but unfortunately I burned it. I had an idea that worked perfectly. I saved the unburned pieces, put it in a glass bowl, layered it with crushed gingerbread cookies and whipped cream. Everyone loved the trifle and was the hit of my Thanksgiving meal. My daughter said,"great save Mom." I told her it was our little secret!....lol
My cooking tragedies
I think my biggest flop was misreading the recipe and putting way toooooo much salt in my oatmeal cookie dough. I think every cook has done that a time or two....lol
