S    So as part of my tenure as an Allrecipes Allstar, we’ve been asked to divulge what it is that we like about Allrecipes.  As soon as I stopped thinking, “What’s NOT to like” the creative wheels started to turn and I realized there are several reasons I love Allrecipes, and being a fan of… MORE

I’m from the South and us Southerners take our butter fairly seriously.  We like it in copious amounts on just about anything from cornbread to bullet holes because, like a bag of free money, it can make even the worst situation a bit better.Growing up in a farmhouse that was built in 1874,… MORE

About Me
I grew up on a farm in Tennessee learning how to cook what we grew in the garden. I'm definitely a Southern girl at heart and love Southern cooking. I like to say there isn't a recipe I won't try...unless it involves beets. Ha!
My favorite things to cook
Southern food! You can't go wrong with it when you cook for guests - who doesn't like macaroni and cheese? Plus, i know most of the recipes by heart, so I don't have to drag out a cookbook. It also proves the theory that enough cheese can make anything taste good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sister and I get together each Thanksgiving and go absolutely crazy. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without someone making pink gravy, or potatoes turning black, or completely forgetting the squash in the oven...so I suppose I would say "Thanksgiving Mishaps" would be our tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I got my husband to enjoy salmon. Granted, we had just started dating when I made it for him and he HAD to enjoy my salmon, but I'm calling it a "W" anyway.
My cooking tragedies
Well, there were the peanut butter noodles that I made with Worschestershire sauce (note to self: just because soy sauce and Worschestershire sauce come in similarly-shaped bottles does NOT mean they are similarly-flavored.) There is also the blackened catfish that turned out more "blackened" than "catfish." My husband still teases me about that (it even made an appearance in our wedding vows!)
