Just your average everyday home cook. Raising 3 kids as a single mom did not leave much left over for eating out, so whenever I tried or heard of a great restaurant dish I always tried to recreate it to my tastes and budget. Turns out I taught myself to cook rather well in the process!
My favorite things to cook
Anything. Especially foods from other cultures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Look in the pantry and create your dinner from what you have
My cooking triumphs
Cooking my way through a Rick Bayless book
My cooking tragedies
Sausage, mustard, and potato casserole and the biscuits that dented the kitchen floor
