I live with my sister in Texas, helping to take care of her two kids and our three dogs, and am trying my best to learn to cook better with few resources and little money.
My favorite things to cook
I love barbeque, and have been dubbed the house specialist on barbeque sauces ranging from spicy to sweet and everywhere in between, but I really like baking just about anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year, before my mother died, we would get up around noon on special holidays to the smell of mom cooking and baking in the kitchen. There's nothing like the smell of fresh hot turkey and fried rice stuffing.
My cooking triumphs
I concocted a recipe for chicken so that the entire family could eat without costing us a fortune: Rice Bedded Chicken with Vegitables.
My cooking tragedies
While attempting to bake apples for Thanksgiving, I forgot to check on them and burned honey to the bottom of the baking dish.
