I don''t know if I would use the term expert. Maybe "experimental" would be better. I love trying new things and am constantly on the look out for new recipes. I read through cookbooks like they were The Great Novel. I do have a pretty good reputation as far as cooking goes and the ultimate compliment is someone asking for my recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers top my list! The only thing I want to bring home is a dirty plate
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern all the way! I try to infuse some new dishes into the mix, but always fall back on the old favorites! Arteries Beware!
My cooking triumphs
I've won both a rib and chili cookoff, but it's the little things like trying to come up with something sensational for my next dinner club or Stew and Brew parties that drives me!
My cooking tragedies
A cook never tells :)
