I am 47 years old, very happily married with a 16 month old awesome little boy named Sage. I am also a tree hugging, peace loving hippy type! I have a portable kitchen that I take to Rainbow Gatherings (http://www.welcomehome.org) called "Sweet 'Om" Alabama kitchen. We feed hundreds of people each day for free, all with donated food. It's awesome!
My favorite things to cook
Mostly traditional American dishes, Hamburgers, meatloaf, and the like. Mostly southern influenced.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everything I grew up on in the country in Alabama was made from scratch using fresh eggs from our chickens, real lard, whole milk (the kind you have to shake up)from the old lady down the road with a good milk cow. She also supplied us with her hand made butter and butter milk.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best steaks, hamburgers, pizza, BBQ, and potato salad my friends and I have ever had.
My cooking tragedies
Mistaking a cup of salt for sugar in a batch of peanut butter cookies when I was about 13 years old.
