I'm a native Georgian and I love reading historical romance and fiction thrillers. I love classic television shows. My foodie hobbies include fine dining and baking sweets. Since I got married to the sweetest man ever, I love cooking now. We are always looking for new recipes to add to the cauldron.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cakes, muffins, pies, casseroles, and basically anything that can be mixed and put into a pan. Baking is a journey and each recipe takes you to a new place of sweet deliciousness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught me how to cook. She owned the kitchen in our house when I was growing up. All of her daughters had to be taught how to cook. This was a must, and she was right.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made Chocolate Tiramisu. The first time I made Lemon Pound Cake. My first time making Fried Chicken. My first Baked Spaghetti Casserole.
My cooking tragedies
I remember when I first tried to make Roast Pork Loin, and I did not cook it long enough in the oven. I had freaked out and re cooked it in the skillet. But cooking is a learning process, once that takes a lifetime to master. So my hope is to pass on some great skills to my children, when we have some, that is!!! LOL...
