I am originally from Alabama, therefore I have southern cooking is in my blood. I have traveled the world and have cooked extensively while traveling. I love German and Italian cooking.
My favorite things to cook
My faves are pizza, cookies and pies. Peanut butter cake is another fav. Banana pudding is a southern fav and potato salad I have found is cooked differently thru out the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies at Christmas. Sitting down to Disney movies weekly I believe it was Saturday nights and having homemade fudge or popcorn. Sometimes we were treated to a cake. Chicken was a specialty fav cause my mom has Chrons and can't digest lot.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest memory triumph was my first complete meal I cooked with no help 40years go at age 9. It was fried chicken, mashed potatoes, baked beans, biscuits and gravy. Topped off with an apple pie.
My cooking tragedies
Ah my tragedy to my mind is forgetting I had put something in the oven laying down for a nap and being awoken by the fire alarm. Whew, ah the things we learn so young.
