My husband and I travel as much as we can. We always bring home recipes from where we have stayed and try them at home.
My favorite things to cook
I love shellfish, fish and chicken. My husband loves pork and beef. So finding a nice balance in our weekly menu is always a challenge. We love to grill in the summer and search for interesting recipes for grilling.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am from the South. Our family tradition is chocolate gravy and biscuits for breakfast....a blood sugar raising and heart stopping recipe. So, we just eat that when we are all together once every few years!
My cooking triumphs
I have learned to make my mom's amazing Strawberry Shortcake! I have also learned to lower the sugar and fat content in many recipes and keep the flavor alive.
My cooking tragedies
My early attempts at gravy were hilarious. A group of about 10 people enjoyed my oven fried chicken with biscuits and mash potatoes. However, the gravy was such a mess it "plopped" out of the cup when someone attempted to pour it! Embarrassing. I am better at making gravy now!
