I'm a 37 year old single mom of three kids, ages 19,18 and 17. I have always enjoyed cooking. I enjoyed being in the kitchen with my mom and both of my grandmothers at a very young age.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking good ol' down home Southern cooking, such as, homemade biscuits and gravy, fried chicken with cream potatoes, fresh garden green beans. And just plain old pinto or white beans (or mixture of the 2) with fried potatoes and cornbread. I also enjoyed baking pies and doing other desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I guess my favorite cooking traditions is during the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which was a special time for me because you were around the family and the aromatic smells coming out of the kitchen were such wonderful memories, plus I got to help out in the cooking process which made it very memorable.
My cooking triumphs
I cannot begin to explain all these, too many to mention.
My cooking tragedies
I guess the main one I can remember was being a new wife, and I was cooking a meat loaf, and decided to cook it in the microwave, you could have bounced it up againist the wall. I then decided never to cook in the microwave again ....LOL !
