My favorite things to cook
Casseroles, desserts and southern foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved watching both of my southern grandmothers cook. I don't think either one of them ever followed a recipe, and they were so comfortable in the kitchen. I can barely remember them being anywhere else!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving is when I really shine. That's when I pull out all my grandmother's best recipes and cook up a huge smorgasboard.
My cooking tragedies
Now that I live at a high altitude I've had plenty of baking tragedies. Cooking way up here is a lot harder than I thought it would be, especially baked items. I've never been great at meats, either...but that could be because I don't eat much of it myself.
