I like to be adventurous when it comes to food, and enjoy learning new techniques.
My favorite things to cook
Home-Style Southern cooking is my favorite! I also dabble in cajun/creole cuisine and my husband and I love to cook out on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up on traditional southern fare such as fried chicken, pot roast, beans & rice with cornbread, biscuits & gravy, chicken-fried steak, chicken & dumplings, bread pudding, lemon icebox pie, etc.
My cooking triumphs
I have gathered so many good recipes here at allrecipes.com that have helped me broaden my experience with cooking. I have really enjoyed learning new cooking styles that I had not been well-acquainted with before. This site has really helped me keep dinnertime lively & fresh!
My cooking tragedies
See "Italian Cream Layer Cake" in my photo gallery. Was still pretty yummy though! :)
