About Me
I never cooked at home growing up, just seems to come naturally in our family. Good satisfying down home cooking. Love trying out new recipes, and the guys here love it too.
My favorite things to cook
Love easy fast recipes, like to bake if it doesnt involve pie crust or rolling out dough.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern from my family, Hungarian from my husbands side. Fried sweet potatoes,cornbread dressing,fried okra,Hungarian turkey,paliscintas,Pigs in a Blanket
My cooking triumphs
Most of what I cook,nothing special comes to mind
My cooking tragedies
Like a lot of others, that first Thanksgiving turkey. Still frozen and the paper sack of giblets still in there.
