Originally from the Deep South, now living in the Great White North with my Canadian husband.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Southern dishes, though it can be a challenge finding foods like okra and collard greens in Canada! Growing up in South Florida I was exposed to a lot of Latin cooking too, so I love to make Mexican, Puerto Rican, and Cuban style dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family get-togethers at the holidays and my dad's fish fries(he always made sure to have my favorite-shark!). Also, going to Georgia each summer for our family reunion and pigging out on good Southern cooking.
My cooking triumphs
When my husband recently put in a request that I make chicken n' dumplings again soon and when he raved over my yellow rice! I'm working on expanding his food horizons.
My cooking tragedies
Many...but we don't discuss them...
