About Me
Star-spangled girl, Over 21, Taken.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. Currently I just changed to the "High Fat, Low Carb" lifestyle.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Deep south family that loves the four food groups of salt, sugar, caffeine, and fat. Momma was an excellent traditional southern cook.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for friends and family where it all comes out on time. Wine-making and canning have been my most recent successes.
My cooking tragedies
I hate to measure, so my baking tragedies have been note-worthy.
