My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking with real and simple ingrediences. I love the process, I find it relazing. I love the creative side of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of the more "southern" foods. Although now I have made them lighter and not so unhealthy. I still make my Mom's potatoe salad and chicken and pastry.
My cooking triumphs
I once did a peking duck with all the fixings for my husband's birthday.
It took two days. Never again, well maybe never.
My cooking tragedies
Making bread that didn't rise.
