About this Cook
I am a southern girl through and through. I learned to cook from my grandmother who my mother and I lived with when i was a child. so, chicken and dumplin's from scratch, snap beans and fatback, collards, salmon patties, squash patties, applesauce sandwiches, local or homegrown produce is so important. there is little better than i fresh-picked tomato and mayo sandwich on a hot georgia afternoon.
My favorite things to cook
~Soul Food~&~Italian~are what i understand the most.they were my learning base for spicing.but i love asian,mediterainin,& carribian cuisine.I rarely follow a recipe verbatim. I am not a stickler for measurements(except in baking of course)and even then only on the basics. i always experiment with flavors. for instance, my secret to an amazing meat sauce is a pinch of clove.
My favorite family cooking traditions
~i would have to say that we all love what we know.& southern cooking traditions are some of the most unique and timeless anywhere~ due to the mesh of cultures and cooking styles,even if dominated by traditional southern farming substance.A real southern home cooked meal is always satisfying to the pallet and the soul.

Buffalo Chicken Fingers
this is a really fabulous alternative to fried fingers. i don't have a deep fryer, so if we want chicken fingers i usually have to use a cast iron skillet full of oil. needless to say...it makes a huge mess! the only thing i have done differently to this recipe (after the 1st time) is use a bit of olive oil on the baking sheet and a bit to drizzle. i definitely appreciate the recipe for the 0.05% fat factor. however, the breading was a but too dry for my taste.
