Cooking at the age of 11, my first meal consisted of Roasted Turkey Wings, Baked Mac & Cheese, Smouthed Cabbage and Cornbread. It was Sunday and I prepared a Sunday meal for my family. I should have made a career of cooking. My aunt Carrie was my guardian and a undeclared chief taught me how to cook without saying a word. One thing I enjoyed about her was her cooking ability.
My favorite things to cook
Holiday meals are my favorite dishes to prepare. I used to be very good at preparing Thanksgiving Dinner for my family, but now without someone to appreciate my cooking, I don't do as well. I enjoy preparing Herbal Roasted Turkey with Sausage/Sage Cornbread Stuffing, Glazed Ham, Sweet Potatoe Pies, and various other delights.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess it would be Southern tradition with a flare of English and Italian tradtions. I really love all foods,from all lands around the world.
My cooking triumphs
One of my Cooking or Baking triumps happened while in College. My friend had a birthday and I prepared her an Ice Cream Cake and a Lobster dinner. The cake was exceptional, but the Lobster was a bit over cooked. We both enjoyed the meal and the cake.
My cooking tragedies
Holiday times, I decided to make the Egg Nog from stratch and as I prepared the Nog, I tasted it and something was missing, so I telephone relatives, describing the ingredients, but I had forgotten the Nutmeg. Simple enough and easy to remedy.
