Born and raised in the South and still live here. I love Southern Cooking but try to experiment with other types of cooking and love the taste.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that my family likes, such as grilled meats and vegetables. We also like very traditional Southern Cooking. Mexican is another favorite along with Italian. We all just love food!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and News Years Day are days for traditional recipes for my menus. Of course our Thanksgiving meal is in the works today with this being Novermber 16th. It is a turkey, cornbread dressing, broccoli casserole, sweet potato souffle, green beans and of course dinner rolls. Our Christmas dinner consists of salads, baked potatoes, and grilled steaks. New Years is black eyed peas, cornbread, ham, turnips and turnip greens.
My cooking triumphs
After my disaster with my first experience at cooking fried chicken I was wise enough to seek counsel on recipes and the amount of ingredients to use in my recipes. It must have worked because 43 years and 100 more pounds later, I still have the same husband who still enjoys his home cooked meals.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked fried chicken I think that I not only salted the dredge but also salted the flour I coated it with and the chicken also. To say the least it was tooooooo salty. But my husband of only a few months at the time ate it anyway... I could not, and he got sick.
