I'm retired and working in a second career as a high school Science teacher.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Mexican; homemade lasagna(the more, different cheeses the better!); homemade, 2-day seafood gumbo (only two of my grandchildren, and none of my kids like this, so I hardly ever get the opportunity to cook it).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern New Year's Day dinner, including blackeye peas and ham hocks, cornbread, and all the mustard greens I can eat!
My cooking triumphs
I can whip up something delicious in no time, and without referring to a recipe, using whatever we have available.
My cooking tragedies
Every type of meat I cook on the grill ends up the same way! How would you like your steak? It only comes one way: third degree!
