born and raised in the south, but have traveled quite a bit. I love southern cooking, since it was what i first learned starting at an early age by watching and helping my mom. I like to try new recipes from all regions.
My favorite things to cook
anything that takes time and patience. I love to bake and try gourmet recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
drawing on family recipes passed down through generations and holiday baking is something i get great enjoyment from.
My cooking triumphs
Indian curry, Thai stir fry recipes, anything Italian, homemade breads, cream cheese caramel flan, sticky toffee pudding, pork tenderloin with wild rice pilaf, cream brulee.
My cooking tragedies
I don't have the knack for my mom's coleslaw dressing, so i leave that one for her expertise.
