About this Cook
I have lived in the south all my life and would have it no other way. I enjoy the fun and fellowship with family and friends when preparing food.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with grilling but I also love preparing soul food. It has so much personality and so delicious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother impressed me as a child more than anyone.Everything was made from scratch and she made pie crust, biscuits and rolls seem so easy!!! Her cream corn would make you melt and pecan pies...she always made one extra just for me.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken and dumplings, and finding the right seasonings for collard greens.
My cooking tragedies
yeast rolls :( soooo sad!

Fried Okra
I had been craving fried okra and seen this recipe. I used Lefty's Spiced cornmeal and added cayenne pepper seasoning to the cornmeal....delish!!

Southern Collard Greens
I haven't tried this recipe word for word but this is very similar to my collards and they are delicious. Instead of all water I use two parts chicken broth to one part water.It makes an amaazing difference in the flavor. Sometimes I alternate with side meat strips,a dash of sugar but definitely garlic and sauted onions(from bacon grease) added near the end of the cooking. The photo looks yummy!
