Wife and mother of 3 who loves cooking from my garden. Fresh veggies and herbs are my absolute favorite! I can make a meal with practically nothing if I have to.
My favorite things to cook
I find simple recipes turn out the best, less things to go wrong and if you have good quality ingredients, you want to taste each one, anyways.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast casserole on cold winter mornings, fresh scallops and mullet right out of the bay, fresh collard greens.
My cooking triumphs
My original homemade apple pie recipe won me a grand champion ribbon at the county fair when I was 14, I still use that same recipe today.
My cooking tragedies
I blew up my favorite bbq grill (a prime example of how cell phones are a dangerous distraction). Luckily, the only thing injured besides the grill was my pride. (In the interest of public safety, I no longer use a cell phone, btw.)
