About this Cook
I am a 4th generation cook, my great grandfather was a baker by trade, my grandmother cooked for others for a living until she died at 88 (there was NOTHING my grandmother could not cook), and my mom who always has everyone clamoring for her to make them something.
My favorite things to cook
Something new I have never tried before - I love an adventure!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is very close. My mother and I alternate who cooks for what holiday: I usually do Thanksgiving and she does Christmas, but we help each other along the way. The best compliments I can ever get come from my mom (who began teaching me to cook when I was 8) and my dad who has always been my guinea pig! My husband does'nt really care, as long as it includes meat.
My cooking triumphs
Everytime I teach new students to cook and they make somethig someone can actually eat!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 15, my mom was out of town on business and it was always my job to cook for my dad. I cooked fried chicken for dinner and he had one of his business friends over. He was raving about how good a cook I was at 15 and saw how beautiful the chicken turned out (they were VERY hungry). I served dinner and they took one bite - the chicken was still RAW at the bone! I was SOOOOO embarrassed! They were polite and ate around it anyway!

Perfect Deviled Eggs
They were gone too fast. I added Jimmy Dean Hot Breakfast Sausage to it and a little Tiger Sauce (can you tell the Creole in me coming out?) an it was gone too fast...

Angels on Horseback
Wonderful! The oysters I bought were huge and I wrapped them in Applewood Smoked Bacon. Seasoned with Tony Chacheres and used Jezebel Sauce as a dip - delicious!

Good Ol' Alabama Sweet Tea
this is a good recipe, however, you forgot the LEMON! add the juice of about 6 good lemons and that's will make it better. also, i don't put ice in the pitcher - it dilutes it too much. if you pour the hot tea into a glass full of ice cubes, it's not too sweet - it's JUST right. add a sprig of mint, and you're really cooking with hot grease!
