I come from a long line of great Southern cooks.
My favorite things to cook
No fussy food, I tend to like more "peasant" type food like casseroles, soups, stews. Hearty, easy, stick-to-your-ribs type stuff. I cook a lot of vegetarian recipes.
I hate to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making corn bread in my great grandmother's cast iron skillet.
My cooking triumphs
Crepes, which sound fancy and kinda hard, but actually are pretty easy.
My cooking tragedies
The beef stroganoff I made when I was first married. My husband - who ate anything - said it was horrible...and he was right. Pot roast too. How you can ruin a pot roast is beyond me, but I have.
