My favorite things to cook
Shrimp! Anything with shrimp. God's gift to the world!
Foods with lots of raw vegetables. Raw, fresh and crunchy is how the veggies perform!
I love to smoke foods. Kingly Smoked Salmon is what you'd want as your last meal. Seriously.
I also love slow cooker foods that are more than just roast beef or soup. Ever tried stacked beefy bean enchiladas in a slow cooker?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spiced turkey at Thanksgiving, Pickled shrimp, fresh vegetable salsa (not the tomato store bought stuff, cooking a full breakfast every Sunday morning to give my kids something to remember when they get older).
I use 100 year old 'hand-me-down' recipies updated to ease the calorie burden and more healthy.
My cooking triumphs
I catered a wedding for 400 people.
I am not a caterer.
My cooking tragedies
Served my mother-in-law Banana & Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast I had raved about for months and grabbed seafood seasoning instead of ground cinnamon to sprinkle on the finished product. Wrong! Oops!
I'll never forget the look of revulsion.
