I'm a mother of four sons and 2 grandchildren. Cooking is pretty much what I've been know for over the years. I love trying new and exciting recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love making appetizers and desserts more than anything, but I'm always trying anything in between! As long as it's food, I'll cook it! I really like Italian dishes, a few Jamaican dishes, and simple recipes that I can throw together quickly. Old fashioned recipes are the best!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays are always special in my home. We cook for ALL holidays large or small. We also gather for 2-3 weeks during the summer and barbecue, fry fish outdoors, and have a large seafood boil! Sunday dinners are also a favorite for my family. We have our best conversations around the stove, grill, or kitchen table.
My cooking triumphs
I've catered several parties and weddings. Dinner parties are always a hit at my place. I've even taught cooking classes!!
My cooking tragedies
I do not like cooking with a kitchen full of strangers! I'm always such a sweet, easy-going person, but in my kitchen I am a WITCH!! I won't reveal my worst nightmare in the kitchen for the sake of not hurting feelings of others involved...but I will NEVER volunteer to head up a cooking project with a bunch of ladies who have no idea what they are doing. To make a long story short...it came back to bite me in the butt!! Total disaster!!
