I learned to cook from some VERY authentic Louisiana cooks. I also came up with a lot on my own.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook spicy dishes. Cajun and Creole (no, they are NOT the same thing), Greek, Italian, and Mexican are all things I tend to excel at.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday was always spent at Maw Maw's house, and everyone gathered in the kitchen because that was where the good stuff was.
My cooking triumphs
I won over my Husband and Father in Law who were spoiled by one of the best cooks in Louisiana (and that is saying something). And as if that weren't enough, I even won over said cook....to have someone who is such a great cook tell me how great my food is is quite an accomplishment!
My cooking tragedies
I had a disaster of a curry dish several years ago. It was the first time I cooked for a guy I was dating, and from then on he told everyone what a bad cook I was and wouldn't try anything else I made.
