I'm half Yankee, half Hillbilly, so my tastes run for all the fattening comfort foods like biscuits and gravy, chowders, pies and the like. Just about everything tastes great fried in bacon grease!
My favorite things to cook
Pot roast, beef & gravy over rice, nachos, cake and biscuits. Some times I don't like to cook or bake, but when I long for something particular, nothing else but my own will satisfy my longing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It just doesn't seem like Christmas without some pies, cookies and other sweet treats like peanut brittle, caramel corn and fudge.
My cooking triumphs
I think anything that tastes good is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
A fudge cake that turned out horrible because the sugar I used was from sugar beets, not sugar from sugar canes, so the whole thing stayed liquidy and inedible! Now, it would be called molten lava cake! LOL
