I am a Southern girl who says "y'all" more than Paula Deen! I am very proud of my "Southerness". I love to take recipes and personalize them more for me and my family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook appetizers! I know that sounds weird, but I just love appetizers! I also like to take recipes and "southernize" them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to cook with my son. He is 12 and is not a typical "chicken finger and boxed macaroni and cheese" type of guy. He loves to make desserts, no surprise there!
My cooking triumphs
My own personal recipes of Shrimp and Black Bean Chili and for Southwestern Ribeyes with Smoked Gouda Grits.
My cooking tragedies
I made a broccoli casserole for my soon to be hubby. Now, 19 years later, we STILL cannot figure out why it tasted like a pickle casserole!!
