Southeastern girl, mother of three tween-agers (twenty-something), love my kitchen. Love to grocery shop and coupon. Camping and camp cooking is a favorite.
My favorite things to cook
Love to create dishes out of leftovers and minimal ingredients to choose from...some of my family favorites have been discovered in this manner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas, the guys tend to the bird, while the ladies are preparing the sides...so I always choose a task close to the carving station so I know when they are removing the skin for carving...yummmm!
My cooking triumphs
Catered my sister's wedding solo for 125 ppl. Never fed that many by myself. (I'm not a caterer, just a country girl who knows how to feed a family.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt the pork chops on one side when my sons friend came to a sleepover. It was so funny. I was embarassed, until he said "Wow ma'am, these are some really good chops, you don't burn stuff not even half as bad as my momma". What a belly full of laughs we had that supper.
