About this Cook
I come from a very Southern family and grew up on dishes made from scratch! I have to learn to take my family learned skills and adjust them to meet the taste buds of my 3 sons who have grown up in the fast food era. It definitely creates a challenge!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make traditional recipes with a twist like Chicken Pot Pie, Twice Baked Pork Chops, Fried Chicken, Chicken and Dumplings, Beef Stew, etc...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving my nephew comes over and we start preparing the Thanksgiving Feast including some great traditional dishes including Squash Cassserole, Cornbread Stuffing, Deviled Eggs and of course Roast Turkey :)
My cooking triumphs
I have succesfully mastered the art of a fluffy, made from scratch, dunpling! In the cooking world that is the accomplishment I am most proud of and my Grandma would be too :)
My cooking tragedies
I dont know that I have had any cooking tradegies other than over salting a food.... That always ruins a dish!

Meatball Nirvana
I didnt really care for this recipe. I served it at a family function and there just wasn't much flavor. I have preferred other meatball recipes much much more.
