About this Cook
My family is either grown and moved away, or else, as in the case of my daughter, has become a really good cook themselves
My favorite things to cook
I used to love to bake but do not do that much any more. I don't need to eat all that by myself!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with basic Southern cooking. Now I try different things and try to cut the fat.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas favorites
My cooking tragedies
Not very good at seafood (fish) cooking

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken
My daughter basically makes this recipe, but she uses lemons instead. She pricks the lemons with a fork or something sharp before putting them inside the bird with onions. She also rubs olive oil on the outside skin, sprinkles it with sea salt, and lets it sit for a while before she roasts it. I don't think she adds any stock to the pan and usually has plenty of juices. It is to die for!!

Beaten Biscuits
My husband calls these "hard tack" but my family LOVES beaten biscuit and ham. They are also good toasted with butter and jam. They will NEVER rise like regular biscuit - that's what makes them special. My Mom was from KY and she ordered these special from there. My cousin has a break and makes the very best ones!! My nephew makes them in a bread machine somehow.
