I'm a registered nurse, married, with one grown daughter (she was married 10/30/04 in New Orleans - the wedding was masquerade). My husband I like to remodel homes for resale, and we also garden and landscape.
My favorite things to cook
Anything on the grill - charcoal or wood, not gas. I learned to bake yeast breads several years ago and like to experiment. Love to cook big meals for lots of family and friends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern holiday traditions like cornbread dressing, boiled custard, divinity.
My cooking triumphs
A truly beautiful yule log. Also a gingerbread house with my daughter, but it was, unfortunately, eaten by the dog one night while we slept.
My cooking tragedies
Maybe I should have put the gingerbread house here.
