What can I say...I love to cook, bake, decorate cakes, and experiment with recipes. Lol. And while I may have grown up in New England and dearly love seafood and clam chowder (all styles), I consider myself a "Transplanted Southerner" at heart...thanks to wonderful Virginians who taught me how to REALLY cook!
My favorite things to cook
Well, it might not be healthy but anything that is fried or has cheese in it is just fine with me. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sour Cream gravy, Cornbread Stuffing, Sweet Potato pie, Baked Macaroni and cheese, and...(drum roll)...FRIED CLAMS THAT HAVE THE BIGGEST BELLIES I CAN GET!
My cooking triumphs
While living in Southeastern Virginia for several years, some of the "Best Cooks in the World" helped teach me how to make Fluffy Biscuits, Sausage Gravy, Fried Zuccini and/or Yellow Squash, Corn Pudding, and Shredded Bar-b-que sandwiches with coleslaw!
AND how to catch, cook, season, and eat Blue Crabs! YUM!
LOVE YA, Gloucester, VIRGINIA!!
My cooking tragedies
Making homemade Sugar cookies without a recipe...because if the pioneer women could do this, how hard could it be?
Even the birds wouldn't eat them! lol.
