My favorite family cooking traditions
I always make chicken and dumplings, squash dressing, and sweet potato puff for Thanksgiving with my family.My great aunt passed down the chicken and dumplings recipe. An dear, old neighbor and friend, who died of cancer, passed down the squash dressing and sweet potato puff recipe.
I also make dirt cake for family BBQ's and all the men in my family's birthdays and special events.
My cooking tragedies
The time I was making chicken pot pie! Halfway through, I realized I didn't have any chicken in my freezer, so I used what I had -sausage,to avoid a trip to the store. Bad mistake! It was horrible!Needless to say, I never lived that down.
