I grew up in the South watching both of my parents cook the most amazing dishes (in my opinion). Cooking was only a hobby for me since it seemed to run in the family until my father died when I was 15... and then it became one of the only ways I knew how to keep his memory alive. So, now, cooking is not just a hobby. It's just as important as breathing or showering. It's my way to remember him and make everyone's tastebuds happy in the process.
My favorite things to cook
Southern dishes, latin inspired dishes, japanese dishes, baked goods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried chicken, fish stew, sweet potato cake.
