What's for dinner is on my mind when I open my eyes in the morning. I love cooking for my family. I am getting to the point where I don't like to eat out cause I feel I can make it better and cheaper at home. I remember being 4 or 5 yrs old helping my mom make dinner, by 10 I was making dinner for my parents.
My favorite things to cook
I grow up a meat and potatos girl.And on boil sea food. I am from LA. What I like to cook has flavor.Not spice. Well maybe a little. When I make brown gravy and roast my kids want to lick their plates. ok they do...lol
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gumbo Gumbo Gumbo and my mom makes the best. Sadly I can't make it like her. I tried for years. For Christmas and Thanksgiving from all the food we cook, gumbo is all I eat. No turkey, No ham, just GUMBO.
My cooking triumphs
Not gumbo!!lol Although mine is ok. The only triumph I need is my children saying that's gooood, and more please.
My cooking tragedies
Fried rice. Can't do it. It's bad, very bad. I am stay away for it for awhile til I get up enough courage to try it again.
