I live in Fairmont WV and have been married to a wonderful man since November 2005. My daughter attends WVU and she is the light of my life. I really enjoy cooking for my family and friends and often take new dishes to the office and invite friends over for cook outs and low country seafood boils.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook are various chicken dishes, soups, slow cooker recipes and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is using a lot of pretty baskets and different color dishes to serve my finished in. I think my family competes when it comes to decorating for holidays. I love a seasonal set table and matching dishes. It makes everything very pleasing to the eye.
My cooking triumphs
I think all triumphs are when your guest are done and the plates are clean.
My cooking tragedies
I don't have major tradgedies, but I am not a big baker. I don't like to follow recipes to the "T" and you have to when baking. I like to bake pumpkin cakes, or Zucchinni breads. Cakes and homemade brownies are wonderful, but so much work. :)
