I travel a lot and very rarely have the opportunity to cook. When I do I just love to make people happy. If everyone is eating then I am having a great time.
My favorite things to cook
Baking in general. I so enjoy a great brownies or cookie. I really enjoy ethnic recipes with a lot of flavor and fresh ingredients. It is great to introduce my husband to new tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Black eyed peas for New Year's with pan fried corn bread. My mom's cheese potatoes are always appreciated.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake. I have evolved my own recipe and it is a big hit at family functions. They often call ahead to make sure I am bringing it.
My cooking tragedies
Peanut Brittle!!! I just can't seem to get it right.
