Hi, my name is Tina. I am a mother of 2 girls (16 & 21) and 1 grand-daughter (2 yrs). Nearly all of my family is girls and women except for the men who "marry in". Yet, I am the only one who loves to cook. I love to cook but, love to hear that people like what I have made even more. I tell people if they don't like something.... lie...
My favorite things to cook
I like to make unusual things from everyday food. I am always looking for new ways to cook staple foods besides fried chicken and fried pork chops. I am from Texas where almost everything is fried so, I love finding different ways to cook things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition I can think of is at thanksgiving when I have everyone who is coming give me 1 request that they want me to make and I make everyone's requested dishes.
My cooking triumphs
I pull off thanksgiving every year for about 13 people all by myself with only 1 oven and 1 convection oven. I consider that a triumph! LOL
My cooking tragedies
Mainly my cooking tragedies are recipes that I have never made before that SEEM like they would taste good but don't! When I make dishes like this for supper, everyone looks forward to going out to eat! LOL
