I love to cook, but most importantly, I love to see others enjoy my meals. That gives me the greatest satisfaction. I prefer simple recipes with simple ingredients that would be considered "homecooking".
My favorite things to cook
Anything - I really enjoy cooking. Although the fancier something gets, the less interested I am. I prefer comfort and old-fashioned, simple goodness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just real down-home cooking. Sight, smell and taste. Recipes are living documents - to be changed and adapted.
My cooking triumphs
My mama's stuff! It ALMOST tastes like hers.
My cooking tragedies
My first batch of rice for my gumbo when I had more than 10 people....had to do it twice, and it STILL didn't come out right. Mama set me straight though and it's been good ever since.
