When I was employed, cooking was all about coming home from work and getting a meal on the table as fast as possible. As I am essentially a morning person, this was a challenge for me. Now every day is a culinary adventure I love.
My favorite things to cook
Almost every recipe sent to me daily by allrecipes.com, but especially anything submitted by Chef John whom we have been following for years.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ya'll know we southern gals cook with bacon grease, aka drippings. My mom used canned goods almost exclusively and she was a farm girl. She also liked to stockpile canned goods, a habit formed by the 30's Great Depression, I think. I rarely use canned anything.
My cooking triumphs
As of today, I've never made a souffle, but one of my goals is to try. I do make bread people love, but, personally, I do not normally eat bread with a meal. Weird, huh?
My cooking tragedies
Making a meal my husband doesn't like. PTL it doesn't happen often, but I am always trying new recipes. Some really read well, but don't taste as good as anticipated. I don't cry over this, however, because it's probably the recipe and not me.
