I 'mainline' Food Network and other cooking-related programming on a daily basis. Proud mom of 2 honor students, loving wife to a great husband. I grew up around my Nana and Mom in the kitchen, so cooking has always been instilled in me as being a very important skill. The internet is just a virtual goldmine of recipes and I utilize it every single day.
My favorite things to cook
My husband has a huge sweet tooth, so I'm baking all the time. Mainly, I enjoy cooking slow-cooker type meals and anything that's hearty and comforting (Pot Roast, Casseroles, Pot Pies, etc.).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade stocks, saving (& using!) bacon drippings.....I know that the homemade stock idea sounds like a lot of work, but if you really enjoy cooking, you can't imagine using canned stock. Bacon drippings add SO MUCH flavor to biscuits and soups and rice dishes (I could go on and on)....might not be the healthiest thing in the world...but hey, you ate the BACON, didn't ya? lol
