Then there’s my sister Neat who specializes in a variety of things, most notably chitlins and hog maws. She also bakes very delicious cakes, but after our mother passed away, she doesn’t do very much, although she does Yum Yum.

My brother’s wife, Sammie Jean, makes the best dressing in these parts, and I finally listened one day to how she does it and tried it on my own. It may not be as good as hers, but it runs a close second. When I first learned how to make it, my daughter said, “Ma, just because you know how to make it doesn’t mean we have to have it every day!” Hey, I love what I love. Don’t judge me.

My sister Willie Mae is the casserole queen, and my sister Willie Marie does this little nut bread that literally melts in your mouth. By the way, Marie, what happened to this treat during the holidays?

So we have established that cooking is not my greatest attribute, although I commend my husband for making me feel good about my efforts. He says I make homemade biscuits the way his Mama used to, and I consider that a compliment. If he had his way, I’d be baking biscuits every day, but I don’t see that happening.

Good food usually leads to overeating and weight gain. That’s something I battle with all the time. I’ve really got to learn to curb my appetite, so I welcome any suggestions.

I don’t really have “ONE” particular weakness. In fact, I’m a pretty picky eater. I just go overboard with what I do like to eat.
