Air Force brat, moved over 40 times in my life. Married my high school sweetheart. Graduated from the University of Alabama and I'm a huge SEC football fan. I love my family and I can't wait to retire so my husband and I can build our dream home at the beach and do some traveling. I hate green peas!
My favorite things to cook
Enchildas, breakfast tacos, cream cheese mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, buttermilk fried chicken, southern potato salad and any kind of football tailgating food! YUMMO!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Dinner! And our Christmas Eve buffet! And I make the best frosted Christmas cookies ever, even one 1st place in a bake off on year in Biloxi, MS. My price for winning, I had to post the recipe in the newspaper. My mother and grandmother were furious because it was a FAMILY recipe handed down. BIG TROUBLE!!! :(
My cooking triumphs
I have a wonderful white cake recipe with a buttercream frosting. Learned to bake this cake from my mother.
My cooking tragedies
The only thing that I can remember cooking that was completely inedible was a cheesy corn and jalapeno side dish. I was disgusting! In the trash....
