I'm married to a wonderful man, Jeffery, of 25, (just had and Anniversary Aug. 27th, yay!) years and counting. We have a beautiful daughter name Meghan Grace who is also 25 yrs of age and in the picture with me, she's the cute one! I love to cook for my family, love love love!!! I'm not big on quick and easy because if it's good, really good then it's worth the wait and my Family is worth the time! Nothing wrong with taking the time to create a meal. Alot of people want a meal in a box, we need to go back to good food and a sit down at the table meal for your family.
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian! Anything with pasta and a good "on the stove all day" red sauce or a good creme sauce. I love southern fried food. Chicken, mash potatoes and milk gravy made from the drippings, yummy! I love to cook on the grill, you name it I will try it. Bacon on the grill is great I also make my fried potatoes for breakfast on the grill. I do like to use the slow cooker in the fall and winter. It's nice to come home after work to a roast or homemade beef stew! Soul food, anything made with love!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and me and my mother and daughter in the kitchen together preparing everything we all love for TG day. Turkey in the roaster, ham soaked in coca cola, moms homemade dressing from the turkey drippings, corn pudding, sweet potato casserole, green bean bacon wraps, etc. I could go on and on. I love the smell coming from the kitchen that time of year! I also love Halloween, my daugher, her boyfriend Kevin and my Husband and I love to carve pumpkins and after we clean them we roast pumpkin seeds we make cupcakes and decorate and we also have homemade pumpkin pie with LOTS of cool whip.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering fried chicken and milk gravy like my mother made when I was at home. Got it!!!!!!
My cooking tragedies
What tragedies!?! :) ha! There is always room for improvement that's why I didn't put Expert, because sometimes the bad happens, it's just life and we learn from our mistakes :)
