About this Cook
After 20 years of teaching middle school reading I became the librarian of an elementary school. I love being back with books and sharing them with the kids.
My favorite things to cook
Anything using my slow cooker and casseroles (with lots of meat) that doesn't put me in the kitchen for a long time after work.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Southern with Virginia baked ham and bacon as seasonings is what I grew up with. Sausage gravy over bicuits, cornbread, grits (cheese), bacon drippings flavored green beans and squash, black-eyed peas, butter beans, cobblers, are all part of the South.
My cooking triumphs
Too many to list.
My cooking tragedies
Pork fried rice (so bad I threw it out after the first bite).
