Love to cook, Love Christ, and am blessed by wonderful family and friends in my life; all who are very willing guinney pigs! Cooking is my de-stressing activity. I use my skills to benefit my Church, potlucks at work, and catering when I'm asked. I'm a Food Network junky, always searching for something new to try.
My favorite things to cook
Anything southern and rich. Never trust a skinny cook! Paula Deen is my cooking hero.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ham, Beans & Cornbread; comfort food at it's best.
My cooking triumphs
There have been many, but my favorite was my 1st try at beef wellington and one of my gourmet club guests who has traveled extensively throughout the world, declared it one of the best he'd ever had. I beamed for days! My drunken bucatini will have you singing Italian.
My cooking tragedies
Tapioca pudding at age 13. My Home Ec teacher kept preaching to be creative but never defined what that meant. I loved tapioca and thought double the pearls would be double good. The spoon literally stood straight up in the pot - it was like glue.....
