I have been cooking for many years. Being raised a Southerner I used to cook traditiionally Southern not thinking of the unhealthy aspect. Through the years I have evolved into a much healthier cook and now enjoy different cuisines. I'm not a vegetarian but do tend to eat limited red meat due to saturated fat issues.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy many types of recipes. I especially enjoy making dishes that have grains. I also like to try new things. I rarely make really spicy "hot" recipes because I don't tolerate the heat well. I love to cook for others as this is very rewarding!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family loves a chocolate meringue pie that was my mother's recipe. We also enjoy a Taco Salad recipe that I acquired many years ago.
My cooking triumphs
Have had many triumphs but one that comes to mind is a beautiful sponge cake baked in an angel food pan with glazed almonds on top. It was beautiful and tasted good too!
