I'm from Southern West Virginia and learned about all of my cooking from my grandmother and aunt. I'm always interested in learning more recipes and techniques to make life a little easier. I am starting to get arthritis in my hands so I'm needing ways AROUND some things I'm having trouble with like opening things.
My favorite things to cook
I am open to new things but mostly southern fattening recipes :D I make a mean kettle of pinto beans and all the fixin's. I love to bake too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are awesome. We also love to bake a lot for Halloween. My aunt really made the Holidays fun and yummy and I'm trying to carry on the traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I cook lots of stuff but I'm sure not as much as some of the cooking on here. I make an excellent cheesecake supreme. I'm good at the pinto bean and cornbread meals...any country cooking - almost ;)
My cooking tragedies
I can't make a homemade cathead biscuit to save my life. If you can break the outside open the insides are soft...lol.
