Hi..I'm just a regular, good hearted, honest, sincere woman. Looking to survive happily day to day. Simple lifestyle, but can handle the more gourmet lifestyle, also. I love to cook and like to experiment with new recipes and methods of cooking.
My favorite things to cook
New recipes and old, tried and true recipes. I really don't have a favorite thing to cook, just things everyone in my family will eat..all at the same time..
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays are turkey, dressing and ham with all the trimmings. New years day is blackeyed peas, cornbread, hog jowls and cabbage. A rare favorite dinner meal is breakfast...Eggs, sausage gravy, fried potatoes and biscuits (from scratch, of course)
My cooking triumphs
My most memorable triumph would have to be Eggs Benedict...I was trying to impress a man, of course...He said it was pretty good...He use to own his own restruant...
My cooking tragedies
My worst tragedy was when I was a newly wed for the first time...My husband cooked his famous spaghetti sauce and put the pasta on and told me to watch it until he ran to the store...Meanwhile, his boss and wife arrived a little early and my husband took almost an hour to come back..I had never cooked much at all...so..I stirred and stirred until he got home and it was a muuushy mess...He had to go back to the store for more pasta...
