Who Inspires You in the Kitchen? Tuttorosso #CelebrateYourTradition

Every family has some sort of tradition when it comes to food.  Sunday dinners, holidays, or just a favorite food.  Celebrate your tradition Contest by Tuttorrosso gives you the chance to honor or thank someone special who has inspired you in the kitchen.  Maybe your traditions have led to the passing down of a favorite reicpe?   Wondering who or what inspired me?

Mom -   There is just nothing so good as Mama's cooking and my Mama can make a meal.  My favorites gosh there are so many.  To name a few I love her roast, gravy and rice, country fried steak and hamburger and rice.  I mean look at that plate don't you just want to grab a fork and dig in .Yum!

She was a true Southern cook and always I mean always had a delicious hot meal on the table.  I spent many many hours sitting in her kitchen right on the counter watching her whip something up. My  favorite thing ever was getting to taste it right out of the pot.  Food always taste better out of the pot (just saying).

Granny S-  her biscuits are talked about all over no lie.  She can whip up some spaghetti that will make you cry and the cakes this woman bakes up oh my.  And don't forget her fried chicken ! My Granny makes the best best fried chicken .

Granny S. and my Mama make up all of our special holiday meals and that is a tradition we all look forward to.  Luckily Thanksgiving and Christmas only come once a year because we do some serious eating.

You can tell I am blessed with some amazing amazing inspiration.
