My name is Heather. I live in a medium sized industrialized town on the Gulf Coast in Texas with my husband and our two children.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook good old traditional Southern cooking. I also love Italiano and Mexican food. Mostly Southern comfort is where my base is... however, I am delving more into the healthier staples everyday. I really like simple, classic meals but am perfectly capable of pulling off a perfect souffle and pie crust, not to mention any cake to die for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, my mother makes the best gumbo you will ever have in your life. Sometimes I'm tempted to post it and maybe I will but for now we'll keep it to ourselves. Lots of southern comfort in our family. Fried chicken, chicken fried steak, creamy mashed potatoes. Porcupine meatballs. Ain't nothing wrong with that.
