I have a six year old son and try to make things that he will like. He is not hard to please usually but he his days, lol. Can you believe he doesn't like potatoes?! I get tips from my cousin who is an excellent (southern) cook. I had to text her for directions on gravy! But she is really my inspiration to cook. My mother didn't cook all that much.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican food and southern food. I like trying new things as well. And we love to cook steak!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every time I visit with my distant cousins, we ALWAYS cook. Boiled peanuts are a must have, potatoes, cole slaw, baked beans, etc. And occasionally the family recipe Butter Cream Cake, but it takes FOREVER to make!
My cooking tragedies
I cooked for a date once, tilapia, and after serving him he informed me that it was not done! How embarrassing!
