I feel blessed to be a true Southerner. Born in Savannah,Ga.,I have lived most of my life in Tennessee. The South has such a great diversity in cuisines. From seafood to down home country cooking and don't forget "THE BBQ". I've been married for twent one years, no kids(except my dog-children)and I have been a Respiratory Therapist for almost twenty five years.
My favorite things to cook
I have been known to be a "crock pot queen" but lately I've been trying to cook simpler meals with less gravies and sauces. I like to find recipes that are easy but unique. And I use my grill A LOT! I live in the South, we grill all year long.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The annual five course pre-Christmas dinner with that I make for my husband and my parents as a gift for them. I get out the fine china and crystal for this dinner. My Mom and Dad love it.
My cooking triumphs
When anything I cook makes people happy.
My cooking tragedies
The only thing I can think of was making a blueberry sorbet in a new ice cream maker. It got all over the counter in the kitchen and stained it. And it didn't taste that great!
