My favorite things to cook
Healthy foods, family recipes, seafood
My favorite family cooking traditions
Turkey & dressing, sweet potatoe pie, fruit cake (has become a family affair, my mom taught me how to make a Sally White cake at Christmas time and she and I used to make together, now my oldest son & husband help me since she is gone, but I can feel her presence telling me how to mix it, etc. and I smile), buttermilk cornbread (recipe from my mother-in-law,she made the best). Boiled shrimp, again, my mother taught me how. Family recipes handed down are the best!
My cooking triumphs
Simple Boiled Shrimp, simple is better, Buy shrimp with heads on, boil with pepper corns, sliced lemon, till pink. cover let sit 5 min, then drain and sprinkle generously with salt.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list!
