"Wow! I love this cheesecake! It's the third recipe I've tried over the years and I made it according to directions. I thought the citrus zest may be a bit much but it isn't at all. Mine came out brown on top but not too brown, the crust was just right and the cake creamy and moist just the way I like it. Thank you Emeril for a wonderful recipe"
Hi, I live in the Ozark mountains in north central Arkansas. I've been married to Jerry for 27 years.
My favorite cookbook would have to be Joy of Cooking because it's like a Cook's Bible...if you can't find something anywhere else you will find it in there. I don't use it all the time but if I have a question it's the first place I turn. The one I use the most is a Louisiana Junior League cookbook called "Cotton Country Cooking". It has everyday food in it that is what we like to eat the most.
I've cooked just about anything I can think of from lobster to raccoon. We even cooked turtle.
The thing that I really get peeved about is when people try to be someone they aren't. If you are just yourself you'll come a lot nearer to being who you want to be which is probably accepted and liked by all.
I'd like to go to Europe if I had a month off. I've always wanted to go to France because that's where one side of my ancestors are from, England and Wales since that is where the other side originates and then Scotland where even others are from. I think everyone should know their heritage.
Favorite FoodsI guess my favorite food would have to be Mexican and Italian. Anything spicy and hot. My favorite restaurant is El Acapulco and the favorite dish is Mixed Fajitas. (Then there's the salsa and the enchiladas and the guacamole, and the...........oh, sorry, I was getting a bit carried away. Nice to meet you all.
