I've been cooking for more than thirty years. In the last ten years I have become a Foodnetwork fan. I use the internet (especially this website)to find new recipes. I like the fact that I can read reviews on a recipe before trying it.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy doing desserts and veal and seafood dishes and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I grew up eating simple southern food - lots of fresh veggies and fried stuff. One of our favorite foods is fried corn. We try to get good corn in the summer and put it in the freezer. It's as good as dessert. Recently I have been trying to cook more light food with not so much frying. This has not always been a hit.
My cooking tragedies
Once I brined a pork loin and was dismayed and embarassed when it was much too salty. Lesson learned: Don't brine an enhanced product.
