I learned how to cook from my mom. I was helping her in the kitchen when I was just 5 or 6
My favorite things to cook
Anything tasty, especially on the grill! I take pictures of my masterpieces to post on Facebook so my friends and family can smack their lips and wish they were at my house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a big family reunion/fish fry in late June every year. We have a huge family (mom's one of thirteen) and everyone is a good cook. We usually have over a hundred people there. The men fry fish, shrimp, oysters, hushpuppies and stuffed jalapenos. We line up 7 or 8 tables and just have a huge buffet. Nobody goes hungry!
My cooking triumphs
Every time I cook for others and look around and at the empty plates and smiling faces.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt the toast once when I was 8.
