I am 22 years old and cooking is my absolute favorite hobby. There are only 2 foods that I really don't care for and they are liver and bell pepper. Too bad on the bell pepper because there are so many ways to use them but I just can't stand the taste. I live with the man of my dreams and he adores my cooking. I am broadening his palette more and more every day.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pork. I have a real sweet tooth so I like to incorporate fruits and glazes and pork goes so well with sweet. I make these Apple and Rubbed Sage pork chops that are devine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Around the holidays, ham rice is a big hit. The juices that seep from ham when baking is the perfect flavoring for rice. It's very smooth and moist and the flavor is to die for.
My cooking triumphs
I used to be terrified of cooking whole chickens in the oven so I always stay away from them but I had a Creole Butter injector kit that I was itching to use so I went for it and it was so good. Be not afraid of little chickens. LOL
My cooking tragedies
Grease fires are terrifying and dangerous and I was born and raised in the south so we really fry a lot of food, so you can bet your sweet buns that I have doused my share of flames, just remember NO WATER! Baking soda or salt or for a small fire a lid will suffice.
