Grew up in NW Minnesota on typical Lutheran Pot-Luck fair. It's a good thing we have a sense of humor about our food around here, because cooking has lost it's place. Now I'm learning to cook southern-style dishes, especially Cajun fair, and am learning to love the process... and definitely the food.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Southern style/ Cajun dishes with a traditional approach.
My favorite family cooking traditions

My cooking triumphs
I'm still patting myself on the back for trying a roux-based Etouffe... and it was something truly wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
There have been many....
