Cooking is healing therapy for me. Nothing is more satisfying than digging in a meatloaf with both hands. I learned all of the traditional southern recipes at an early age and have been known to serve fried potatoes and onions at a dinner party.
My favorite things to cook
I am a cook. I am not a baker. Mrs. Smith makes much better pies than I do. Fresh vegetables are a must and I make a mean stuffed pork loin.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of us, sons and daughters, in the kitchen, tripping over one another and having fun. Doesn't matter much how the food turns out.
My cooking triumphs
Stuffed pork loin. I can do a million things with sweet potatoes.
My cooking tragedies
I fried a hen when I was a young bride. Enough said.
