I am a graduate student in Holistic Nutrition and appreciate healthy, quick, and easy dishes that are packed with nutrition that will keep me going to the next school project! I also like to jog, bike ride, and do pilates.
My favorite things to cook
I was raised in Louisiana, so my favorite things to cook are Cajun dishes, as I am Cajun French myself.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We would pock Easter Eggs for Easter then make deviled eggs with them. Apparently it's a Cajun cultural thing to "pock" Easter eggs which is a game you play where two people take the pointed ends of their dyed eggs and hit them together. The person who breaks the other's egg wins and gets to keep the other's egg.
My cooking triumphs
I have learned so many recipies off of of this website. My father-in-law served 10 months in a prisoner of war camp during WWII and every time I get a new recipe off of this website and see him smile it is a cooking triumph. Thank you all for sharing!
My cooking tragedies
I made this awful tasting pumpkin soup recipe for Thanksgiving one year that had cumin in it and didn't realize how much our family really hated the spice cumin! To make matters worse, my father in law was a WWII vet who had been in a prisoner of war camp and to serve him bad food was really awful!
