I was born and raised here in Donalsonville, Ga. When I got married, I could not cook. Well, the stove wouldn't work at all either. Back then, there was no internet to look up recipes either. I relied on the cook books that come in the mail from book of the month clubs. I even had a Martha Stewart cook book. I enjoy watching cooking shows, Paula Deene is my favorite, of course, same state. I am not very far from where she grew up.
My favorite things to cook
Pizza, spaghetti. my mom never cooked these before and it was when I first had a pizza was when I got married. Spaghetti was unheard of around here. I once planted elephant garlic in my garden, and my mom thought it was spring onions and pulled them up to take home and she ate them. lol.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love the foods for these holidays. and Of course, 4th of July. grilling.
