About this Cook
I live in the heart of Cajun country, where I was born. Due to my father's line of work, I've lived in every state in the US, with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii. I've been interested in cooking since I was 10. At 12 years old, I was preparing gourmet meals for my family.
My favorite things to cook
This is a difficult one. I started out baking, but would say I prefer cooking main dishes. Growing up in Cajun country, I'm well versed in authentic dishes from this region, however, living in all parts of the country, I picked up recipes from everywhere. The main thing I noticed is that most foods from places other than Louisiana, use very little seasoning, which, to me, is vital in cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have always cooked with an abundance of seafood, since it is readily available, living close to the Gulf Coast.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Wonderful recipe! I made it, omitting the vanilla extract because I didn't think it needed it. It turned out fantastic. Will make again, for sure!

Butter Pecan Ice Cream
Delicious, but a little too sweet for my liking. Will make again, decreasing sugar to 3/4 cup. Very rich!

Cajun Sweet Dough
I live in Lafayette, LA. I've had sweet dough pies all of my life, and love them. For those who are expecting a flaky crust, this is not the recipe for that. Sweet dough isn't supposed to be flaky. If it were, this recipe wouldn't be called Cajun Sweet would be called Turnovers. This is a very authentic recipe. Absolutely wonderful!! Thanks for sharing! :)
