Answer by druski
I don’t think there is any difference in the type of foods that are cooked, but there may be a slight difference in the cooking methods and/or seasonings.
I cook greens, sweet potato pie, peas, cornbread(with no sugar), butter beans, butter peas, green beans, fried okra, fried yellow squash, peach cobbler, meatloaf, used to make fried chicken, but grill it now, creamy potato salad, fried corn…does any of this sound familiar?? I just call it cooking. lol.
What do you think? Answer below!
