I am a believer in Jesus Christ and grateful for His gift of salvation! I love to cook for my family and friends. I sell real estate for a living, so lately I've had lots of time on my hands to try out new recipes :) I've been using allrecipes for about six months and decided it was time to join!
My favorite things to cook
When cooking for my family I like to keep it as healthy as possible, but when I'm cooking for a special occasion, I love to splurge!! Love to grill meats and vegetables. I grind my own wheat and bake fresh "true" whole grain breads several times a week. I also grind corn for grits and cornmeal - you really can't beat cornbread with fresh ground wheat and corn!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite is definitely Christmas night dinner. It's our family tradition to grill filet mignon and fry about 5 lbs. of shrimp - and it's amazing how little is left over (maybe because my mom and I "test" at least one shrimp each from every batch as we fry them up!)
