Mother of 3 & Grammy of, and even tho i might be a tad partial it's still true, the sweetest, most adorable, & handsome baby boy, lol. I couldn't be more proud of them.
Grew up in a large family, in rural Texas, with lots of brothers & sisters. Money was always tight but we always managed and finding new, creative, low cost (& edible, lol), meals that everyone liked, was necessary & it made a difference. I still do it today
My favorite things to cook
Love making homemade candy, slow cooking roasts, hams & briskets. And I really enjoy fixing a big AOL's country breakfast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big pot luck dinners at our family get-togethers. Fixing holiday dinners, my homade candy during the holidays & the bird nest treats my kids took to share with classmates & friends @ school for Easter
My cooking triumphs
My slow cooked beef briskets never fail & always get eaten. Never have any to throw out.
My cooking tragedies
Baked a buttermilk chess pie that ended up giving my Ex food poisoning because I didn't bake it properly....he's never ate another one since, lol
