I married my wonderful husband in March 2009. We are happily living in newlywed bliss and loving married life! My husband is a materials engineer and I am a schoolteacher. We love to travel and most recently went to Kauai, Hawaii for our honeymoon. We can't wait to go back! I enjoy cooking for my husband and my family. I love to cook traditional family recipes the way my Grannie has always cooked, which is how I think true cooks cook...never measuring anything, just "eyeball" it!!
My favorite things to cook
My Grandmother's recipes. Especially her famous "dressing"...its the best and I'll only eat hers!! Also, her sour cream pound cake, toasted pecan cake, and her home-made buttermilk biscuits, which have become famous through our family restaurant that she opened with my Grandfather 31 years ago!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Learning my Grandmother's recipes that have been in my family for years.
My cooking triumphs
Definitely the sour cream pound cake and the dressing! Also, my husband's favorite Indian dish (he's from India), tomato thokku. My first success making Indian food for him!
My cooking tragedies
A tomato cream sauce I made recently. Something about it I just didn't like!
