    About Me

    I've always loved to cook.  I made my first scratch cake at age 7, (German Chocolate).  I love all types of cuisine, but after migrating to California 10 years ago, and love the food here, and learning how to prepare the favorites of my Cali, family and friends.  That being said, my passion in cooking is keeping the recipes and traditions I learned from my mother and grandmother, back home in the south, alive  Not that even their recipes can't be improved.  One example is my grandmother (in my mind) made the best pot roast to ever grace a table.  Then, my boyfriend persuaded me to add red wine to the cooking liquid.  It's still my granny's pot roast, only better.   But, so far, nothing I've learned here, improves my Texas style Chicken Fried Steak.  And cornbread???  It seems Californians think it should be like cake, made mostly of flour with a hint of corn meal, rather than cooked in a bacon seasoned cast iron skillet - they key ingredient being corn meal, with a scant amount of flour.  

    My newest interest is learning more about Asian cooking, of all varieties, with the possible exception of sushi.  Where I come from, you hand us some fish, we roll it in cornmeal, fry it, and make some hushpuppies ;)
