Have lived in Scotland for 10 years
My favorite things to cook
Breads and Baking. And all things fattening. LOL
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised near Galveston Bay so seafood was a mainstay in our diet. My mother made a mean Crab Gumbo. My grandfather was Italian and I will always remember his homemade Spagetti. Oddly enough, the secret ingredient was cloves. Believe me, it was THE BEST.
My cooking triumphs
My sister ruined a batch of yeast rolls by overcooking them. I turned them in crumbs and made pumpkin bread and butter pudding out of them. Fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
I wrecked a cheescake. In anger, I stirred the pie into a mushy mess. After I calmed down I pulled out a fluted bowl and alternately layered the mush with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. End result? A Fabulous crowd pleasing parfait
