I started off cooking with my step-dad since I was about 10 years old. Growing up in Louisiana we ate gumbo and crawfish. But my step-dad was military so he cooked a large variety of things. I love to cook and I enjoy when my family can eat at home instead of consuming fast foods. I am not an expert cook, hopefully with more and more practice I will be able to teach my grandkids.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I hope to be able to start traditions with my kids one day. I always thought it would be a good idea for everyone to have a day each week where I cook and serve their favorite meal.
My cooking triumphs
I can finally cook a awesome pot of greens. Still working on the gumbo though.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my cooking mishaps have occured when I tried what I like to call instant recipes. I hate using those frozen vacuum sealed peices of fish. Its like roulette you could end up with water logged fish after defrosting.
