Married and an Empty Nester
My favorite things to cook
Love to try new recipes!!! Nanny's Sauce recipe, Chili, Grilling anything!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mother's Fried Chicken, Turnip Greens, Black-eyed peas and Homemade biscuits. My favorite thing to do with my Mother's biscuits is to make a little hole and pull out some of the inside of the biscuit and fill it with molasses.......YUM! YUM! My Mother-in-Law taught me how to make homemade Italian tomato sauce and meatballs. I always make a big pot so I can freeze the leftover sauce to use with Baked Ziti or Spaghetti during the week. On Christmas Day, my parents always serve breakfast around 10am. It's not brunch....it's Eggs, bacon, sausage, country ham, milk gravy, red-eye gravy, grits, homemade biscuits, juice & coffee! We eat sweets while we're opening gifts along with our Bailey's;-)!!!
