My mother made my 2 brothers and I learn to cook when we were young to prepare us for when we left the nest. My brother went on to becoem a chef and I worked in kitchens for 8 years. The reason my wife married me. :)
Thank you for those that have rated my cornbread recipe! I am happy that others are enjoying it too. Fot a hot pepper sauce in the recipe, if you don't like the tobasco flavour, try another hot sauce. I actually do not use tobacso as it has a very distinct flavour that comes through too much.
My favorite things to cook
Simple things, with a twist. A grilled cheese sadnwich with a slice of pepper jack cheese added to the cheddar is great with a bowl of tomato soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I still make chili, spagetti and lasagne the way my mother made it. You can't get any better than mother's food. There is a chocolate cake recipe that was always made for birthdays growing up that I should add here too.
