I enjoy cooking, but I treasure watching people enjoy my foods, especially children and hungry men.
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat BBQ and Southern style foods, but when it comes to cooking I love Chinese stir-frying. It has become second nature since I worked in a Chinese take-out as a teenager.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was fortunate to have two grandmothers who were the best cooks I have ever known. Family favorites include fried chicken, mustard greens, hush puppies, onion rings, homemade breads and pies,and sweet yeast rolls.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone loves my Asian dishes and children love my baking. I'm known for chocolate chip cookies and blueberry crisp. I also have a way with cheap, tough meats. Best of all, I can start a fire for BBQ quickly without fluid using plain, store-brand charcoal.
My cooking tragedies
This is easy! When I was first married I didn't know much about cooking. I tried to make crepes Suzette, but they were so bad my husband and I couldn't eat them. Neither would our dog!!!
