I was raised in Fairfax Va, but visited my extended family in Statesville NC. my whole life, so Statesville is home to me. I have lived here 15 years. I have a large family, and I lead a busy life. I don't have much time to cook, so I enjoy easy recipes for every day life. I enjoy cooking most when I don't have to do it, but just WANT to.
My favorite things to cook
Slow cooker meals for the busy week nights.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern food. I was raised on it. I was raised in Fairfax Va., but both my mom and dad were from North Carolina, so that's how we ate.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
My first meal for my new in-laws. I cooked a bean soup in the crock pot. The beans were crunchy!! lol.
