About this Cook
I grew up a child of a single mother, so I had to learn to cook at a young age to feed my three younger brothers. It was never a chore. It was a privilege. Cooking makes me happy, and the more people I can feed makes me exstatic. I look forward to the Holidays with anticipation and I give food as gifts to people I know and those I don't, just to bring a smile into their lives.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are probably traditional southern with a hint of flare, or a "secret something," I love beef, and I love it rare! Chicken is something I can live without, but my family loves my chicken and dumplings. I guess my potato salad is my one hit wonder with folks. Desserts are pretty much expounded upon during the holidays. I would rather have a good piece of bread, dripping butter, than most any sweet...except NY style cheesecake of course.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The matriarch of the family is the one who cooks and everyone goes there. That's me. The grandchildren come over to make cookies for two days, then we make goodie baskets and take them to rest homes or senior centers. Just being with my family is the best tradition there is for me.
My cooking triumphs
Potato salad, cranberry nut mold, stuffed shells, Chicken and dumplings, breads.
My cooking tragedies
The worst one I can remember is the time I had the entire family coming over for chicken and dumplings. I thought it left the burner on the lowest setting to keep warm, but I went to far and set in on high. Five minutes later three gallons of Chicken and dumplings, not to mention my pot, was ruined. My family ended up eating hamburgers and hotdogs, outside, since the house smelled, horribly.
