I am a transplant to Fyre Lake, IL from Atlanta, Georgia and Bradenton, Florida. I have been cooking as long as I can remember. Enjoying my vegetable garden and canning everything possible so I can have that wonderful garden taste all year around is my biggest hobby next to cooking. I am always on the hunt for AWESOME recipes and couldn't imagine cooking without AllRecipes.com
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, Italian, home cooking, crock pot recipes, southern, yeast breads...which totally thwarts my low carb diet....
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade fudge at Christmas time when I was a child. Chili and new appetizers on Super Bowl Day.
My cooking triumphs
Making a full Mexican meal: Beef enchiladas, fidel, guacamole, salsa fresca and ranchero sauce.
My cooking tragedies
Dropped the Thanksgiving turkey on the floor while I was getting it out of the oven...think I was about 18...
