I am lucky enough to be near many a specialty store and my favorite is my "Le Gourmet Chef", store. Oh, I could spend hours in this store. Every gadget, pan, knife, absolutely everything I really probably don't need,,but it is here and I am a fan. Each time I go to "just look around",  I… MORE

I am walking into the kitchen after putting dinner on table for family and hubby always praises my food and then I hear a familiar voice saying this, "I was watching you in the kitchen". I turned and looked to see who said this, of course I knew it was the hubby. I said,, umm, ok. He replied… MORE

Ok, so the demo was for "coconut milk beverage". Come on give me a chance to explain before you walk away as many did. It really wasn't that bad. "A shelf stable product that must be refrigerated after opening and used within 7-10 days. It is totally organic, no soy, dairy or gluten. It is… MORE

I have a "head" of garlic in my hand, trusty big knife in hand to "make you mine",, well, garlic had a "head" of his own, must have been a male,,anyway. I try to "smash" this head of garlic on my ever trusty cutting board, as I have seen many a chef do on tv, granted I do have some arthritis,… MORE

I asked the hubby to get a lid for a pan that I was going to cooking in. Now, understand that the lids are on  a roll out shelf on the bottom of the cupboard. There were many lids there, but I showed him the pan I had in my hand and asked him to retrieve said lid. I saw it right there, a… MORE

I was shopping at a store today with my 8 yr. old grand daughter for a new bookshelf for her room. We were clearing out some old books and her shelf literally fell apart in our hands. We set off shopping at a few stores. Found a really cute "cookie jar" which we bought, but finally found the… MORE

About Me
My name is Deborah, please call me Debbie. I've been married for over 36 years to the same man. We have 2 children (girl and boy) and 2 grand daughters, one from each child. At the moment we have a gecko and a cat as housemates.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking fried chicken in my cast iron pans. Any type of pasta dish is always a happy cooking time. I enjoy cooking fish and shrimp whenever possible. My family also enjoys my cornbread, biscuits, beans and greens, they eat almost every bite, so I know they like them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family insists that I make my "famous" potato salad for Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, actually any time is good for them.
My cooking triumphs
A castle cake w/moat for my grand daughter's 7th birthday made of Rice Krispies, frosting and a ton of toppings. It stood over a foot tall with the towers on top. She loved it, that is what matters to me.
My cooking tragedies
I tried making "meat muffins" and the fat from the ground pork overflowed the muffin tin, dripped on stove and caught fire, which in turn caught the meat on fire, which in turn caught the towel that I was holding while trying to get the pan out of the oven on fire, which in turn caught my pants on fire when I dropped it, which in turn burned my hand and arm when I tried to retrieve it, then I had to pay the landlord extra for the burned spot on the tile in the kitchen. I don't make meat muffins any more.
