I like beer, big huge thick steaks (of any meat origin - wild meats or farmed) fishing, and NASCAR!! I'm a female truck driver and also work for the coast guard (so I can fish!!!).
My favorite things to cook
Breads, slow cooker stuff (soups) just about anything. Wild meats.. yum. I like to experiment with different recipes. I like quick and easy stuff. Not lazy, just busy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Typical farmers from the 19th century...a meal's not a meal without meat an' potatoes (and chicken and fish don't count as meat - although I love them as well)
My cooking triumphs
My kick-butt yorkshire puddings from scratch. Real beef fat (not oil) and everything mixed at room temp are both an absolute must!
My cooking tragedies
Cooking for a boyfriend for the first time. Set the back of my sweatshirt on fire by leaning against the stove
