I am a Raleigh City girl fortunate enough to have been raised on a farm. I appreciate good ole' fashion Southern Cooking as well as a variety of ethnic foods. I always want to experiment with new recipes and learn to make the old recipes as good as the women that handed them down to me did!
My favorite things to cook
Beef Roasts with veggies or without.
Lemon cream chicken served with fluffy rice and a crusty bread.
Veggie Stir Fry with or without meat.
Enchiladas with a variety of yummy fillings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Formal Southern Christmas dinners with homemade biscuits, stuffing and desserts. My Great Grandmother made seven cakes every Christmas and during Christmas lunch everyone had a slim slice of each cake. We don't bake as many cakes but we always have a variety of scratch made desserts to share.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade chocolate cake pops with my almost three year old niece last Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
Dry Roast beef :( First attempt at lasagna, very sad results but it has improved.
