I am a transplanted Kentuckian in North Carolina who is in love with Southern Cooking. I am always trying to find new ways of doing old Southern dishes. My dream is to open a small bakery offering pastries, cakes, and cookies.
My favorite things to cook
I must say that my favorite things to cook would have to be any type of cookie or candy. Sugar is an art form and it's my muse!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My entire family has the same kind of tradition. Every so often in the fall and winter we make my grandmother's dried apple stack cakes. The patience it takes to let them sit a couple of days to "ripen" is almost more than we can bear!
My cooking triumphs
I must say my greatest triumph was catering breakfast for 400. Sweet potato biscuits, country ham, peppered bacon, loaded omlettes, and an oatmeal/juice bar!
My cooking tragedies
Potato salad....any type or kind.
