My favorite things to cook
Cinnamon pepper chicken from the Jackson (MS) Jr. League "Come On In" cookbook, Emeril's Shrimp Courtboullion
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional Southern: a little salt, sugar and butter makes everything yummier, but "moderation in all things."
My cooking triumphs
Making Martha Washington candies that are prettier and yummier than my aunts'.
My cooking tragedies
Usually occurs when I serve foods that really should be served the day after cooking, i.e. soups, gumbos, chili. And after years of trying, I've finally found out that my stir-fry never fries because I can't get my wok hot enough.
