I'm a 38 yr. old manager who is never at home. I thoroughly enjoy cooking, but rarely have time to spend cooking like I'd like too.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a southern girl, so a lot of meat and potatoes. I don't like gourmet foods, and many of the ingredients are hard to find around here. I prefer simple traditional foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother and both grandmothers were or are great cooks. Everything I know and love I learned from them. I started helping when I was very small. I love cooking with my mom.
My cooking triumphs
My best meal is Chicken Fried Steak and Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. My family and friends love it. I'm very proud of it. I've been perfecting it for many years.
My cooking tragedies
The first meal I ever cooked completely on my own, was when I was sixteen, and made dinner for my now ex-husband. I tried to fry pork chops for the first time,using a gas stove which I had never used before, and they were burnt on the outside and pink in the middle. But, hey he married me anyway, LOL
