About this Cook
I'm a country girl who got my start at learning to cook in my grandma's kitchen when I was in middle school. At the time I wasn't very interested; I'd rather spend my time outside being a tomboy. Now I'm engaged to a wonderful man who loves home-cooked meals. I can do the basics but I is getting old for me. I'm ready to learn to prepare something new and tasty!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook spaghetti. I used my grandma's canned tomatoes. I also love to fried chicken (of course) and prepare tasty sides to go with it but lately I do not have the time. I'm working more and the last thing I want is to come home to stand on my feet for several more hours. I'm loving Rachel Ray's "30 Minute Meals" but I want something that's healthy as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well...I don't have one of those yet but I look forward to learning to cook everything my mom and grandmother has mastered including collard greens, candied yams, stuffing, sweet potato pie, ham, turkey, sweet potato pies, lemon pies...the perfect holiday meal! Oh and I want to learn to plant gardens to can and freeze my own vegetables just like grandma. She doesn't use recipes. She cooks by memory and experience!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my first Thanksgiving Dinner about two years ago. I didn't make a whole turkey; i just cooked the turkey legs. I made potato salad, macaroni and cheese, stuffing, green beans and a box cake, for dessert. I can't make homemade gravy yet so of course I used the prepackaged kind.
My cooking tragedies
Which one? lol so I still can't make gravy...I tried to make some homemade buttermilk biscuits. That was a disaster. The biscuits were a 10 on the hardness scale. They tasted like sand paper...ughhh...I guess I will try again someday soon!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler
The peach cobbler was delicious but I like the more flaky breading.
