I am a single parent with two lovely children ages 7-months and 5-years old. I often use recipes to cook and do not 'venture' out independently (meaning not use recipes) very often-LOL! I seek quick and easy dishes because of my hectic schedule professionally and personally.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking slow cooker recipes. My favorite is one I 'made up' and it includes chicken (my daughter loves drumsticks), cream of chicken condensed soup. I dump all of these ingredients in a crock pot with some seasoings (chopped onions, a little milk, oregano, a little seasoned salt, and black pepper) and it turns out excellent! Now, this is one recipe I don't need instructions on! LOL!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am from a small town in the south (Alabama) and my mother who is now deceased used to make outstanding soul food like turnip/collard/mustard greens (my favorite food--any type of greens are my favorite), homemade cornbread, salmon patties, fried chicken, chitterlings (for those of you who know what this is, do not judge until you try them-LOL!) I do not eat chitterlings anymore due because they are not very healthy and because I am unwilling to pick and clean them because it is a lot of work!
My cooking triumphs
I am getting better and better cooking day-by-day. Since I now have children I am cooking more and more at home as a cost saving method and now it has gotten to the point where I rather cook at home than eat out! I never thought that day would have arrived-LOL! My daughter often helps me in the kitchen to and she enjoys it.
