I live in west Texas, work for a university, the same one I graduated from. For fun, I bake, read, play with my dog and laugh with my husband. I love simple comfort food. My favorite cookbooks are usually those from churches, junior leagues, and other groups who share family recipes from all over the United States. I am fascinated by regional choices and changes in recipes. I am very fond of Texas compilation cookbooks -- The Texas Highways Cookbooks and the HEB 100th Anniversary Cookbook.
Favorite dish to cook is probably roasted rosemary potatoes. Everyone loves a crispy potato outside and a creamy, tender inside. I spend my cooking life trying to perfect them, though they are really very easy to make. Very popular at my house!
My favorite dish to BAKE is Nancy's No-Kids Kahlua cake, nicknamed the NO-NO KK Cake -- my secret recipe, the one I am famous for.
Favorite restaurant would have to be the Wharf in San Angelo Texas, because of its fresh seafood flown in daily and because it's "our special place" for almost 20 years. And because Terry makes a great salad!
But my favorite meal, hands down, is just a big ol' drugstore or diner hamburger and fries. Thin patty, burnt and crunchy, cooked on top of butter-sauteed onions in a cast iron pan or on a griddle. Big bun, buttered and toasted on a griddle. All fixins' -- sliced tomato, diced onions, mayo AND mustard, iceberg lettuce, dill pickles -- no cheese. With a side of big floppy hand-cut fries with skins on. And a sip of Coke -- for digestive purposes... Heaven!
