Recently I was asked by my daughter to make one of her favorite family dishes—Greek bread—and then it occurred to me that my family is getting older. Time is passing me by. As I stood in the kitchen mixing my ingredients, I stood watching my 8 month old playing with his toys on his high chair… MORE

I love okra. LOVE it. I don't know how else to make my point without using caps on that. I grew up on my Maw Maw's shrimp okra gumbo, fried okra, boiled okra, and basically anything okra. I also grew up on good ole Cajun cooking, which cannot be very healthy. So when as part of the Allrecipe… MORE

About Me
I am from deep south Louisiana and I am Cajun. Growing up in a huge family that loves to cook I have been helping in the kitchen since a toddler. I love cooking and have traveled around to get new recipes. I even lived in Mexico for 2 years and picked up authentic Mexican recipes. I love baking and southern dishes. I excel in homemade pies and southern classics. I am always trying new recipes and something new. My motto is you should always try something twice because nothing ever tastes exactly the same.
My favorite things to cook
I love and I mean LOVE pies. I have a few people addicted to my Lemon Meringue and No bake cherry cheesecake pies. I am constently baking and making desert. I also love to cook southern dishes and simple, easy and tasty things for my kids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday after church my family would get together at my grandmothers house and cook a huge southern supper. Now with my grandmother too old and ill to cook and myself moved away, I love to cook almost every night for my family.
My cooking triumphs
It took me a couple of times to get my lemon meringue pie perfect.... but it was so worth it.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot eat something unless it is seasoned perfectly and I gave my mom a recipe and she under seasoned it. I felt I mislead her. Lol.
