About Me
No profile added.
My Greatest Cooking TriumphI consider finding or developing a recipe that my family consistently asks for over and over to be a triumph - like my lasagna, my chocolate pie, or most recently homemade dill pickles.
My Biggest Kitchen DisasterMy husband has fond memories of his mother's salmon croquettes. I tried to make them one year as a surprise for Valentine's Day - they were TERRIBLE! I have decided I will let my mother-in-law have the market on that particular dish.
My Food For ThoughtGrowing up in the South, I have learned that food goes way beyond just sustenance. Food has the power to tell stories and transport you back to a fond memory or a happier time. I always hope when I prepare one of my family's favorite meals that I am also creating a happy memory.
My InterestsI also enjoy writing and photography. I chronicle my kitchen happenings on my blog "The Cooking Bride" at http://cookingbride.com/. I also write freelance for several publications.
