I'm a busy single mom of 3 kids ages ranging from 11yrs - 20mos. Cooking is therapeutic for me so I'm embracing the art!
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles and crock-pot meals appeal to me because of their simplicity and warm comforting factor in fall/winter. I'm definitely a carnivore and LOVE to grill (charcoal) and usually can here March - October, maybe even November. Cool salads and pasta dishes are refreshing for summertime.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well...I AM a southern girl and come from a long line of deep friers. Fried chicken, catfish, and country fried steak were staples in our house growing up.
My cooking triumphs
My latest triumph - Tyler's Ultimate Cheesecake. By far, it's the best cheesecake I've ever made.
My cooking tragedies
Over the years, too many to mention :]
