I was born in the midwest & raised in apalachia. I'm also a bit of a food adventurer.
My favorite things to cook
We love easy, healthy recipes. Soups, pastas, stir fries etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We're a mix of African american, German, Irish, Native american, and French. Our family traditions are as varied as our heritage.
My cooking triumphs
I have had a couple hits over the years. My husband loves my fried turkey. My homemade meatballs never produce leftovers unless I freeze some before making dinner. Also, I made a chocolate whiskey cake for a friend's birthday one year and she loved it so much that she asked for a second cake for her gift! :)
My cooking tragedies
I guess it's the Native american in me, but I love food with fire. There have been a few times I've made food too spicy for my family & I ended up eating all of it.
