I'm not an expert,I just love to cook. I have a collection of cookbooks and try new recipes whenever I can.
My favorite things to cook
I love desserts and I have the waistline to prove it! My co-workers are constantly asking me to bake a batch of cookies. During the holidays,I bake about a dozen loaves of sweet potato bread to give as gifts and I always get requests for more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught me to cook. She thought biscuit making was something every southern woman should know so that was my first cooking lession.
My cooking triumphs
My stepmother is extremely hard to impress. One night I invited her and my father to dinner and served a spicy shrimp/pasta casserole,crab cakes,and cheddar garlic biscuits. She still raves about it to this day.
My cooking tragedies
My first Christmas dinner was a complete fiasco. The turkey was so dry it crunched and the stuffing had more salt in it than the Dead Sea. After dinner,Pepto Bismol was had by all.
