I am a wife and Mom of 3 great "all boy" boys who love strange and fun food (and a lot of it!!!). My family is "yupper and hillbilly" and a whole bunch of other stuff too. So, we eat fried apples and pasties in the same meal, LOL.
My favorite things to cook
Indian food, pies, new things, pastas and best of all - what can I make with what I have already in the kitchen?!?!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Slow cooked green beans w/salt pork, Corn bread, fried apples, green onions, deviled eggs and ham - Yummy! what a wonderful meal every time!
My cooking triumphs
humm, I have created many things that have been really bad and several things that are really good. But I guess my fav is... Nacho cheese cake as an appetizer.
My cooking tragedies
wow this could take a while! I believe that we have to try try try. I once made a pecan pie for a large Thanks Giving at my house... It never set up and we all spooned out the pecans and dunked the crust as we stood around the pan. Tasted great just looked like a punch!
