Cooking all my life.. Love trying new recipes. My mom returned to school when I was 12. I learned to cook not to starve.. she did not have much time to cook going to college!
My favorite things to cook
New side dishes and desserts,,I don't like complicated recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Seafood, gumbo (chicken and sausage), red beans and rice,corn bread, Does it give you any hint as to where my family came from?
My cooking triumphs
Bananas Foster, Bread pudding.
My cooking tragedies
My aunt is a wonderful cook. She had a recipe for a beautiful make from scratch devil's food chocolate cake... I have never been able to make it like she had..It is 3 layers, never tastes like hers did. It always looks horrible!
