I'm married to the love of my life, Tim, since 1983. I have 2 children. Matt is a United States Marine! He's married with 1 child. Katie is a beautiful 20 year old who is going to school to become an art therapist!
My favorite things to cook
Gumbo! Rice Dressing! and what my kids call "Mama's Makeup" which is a little of everything in the kitchen thrown into one pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gumbo when we get together with the whole family!
My cooking triumphs
Realizing that there isn't really a wrong way to make something. It's okay to change tried and true recipes because taste is personal.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a newlywed, I told my husband I thought I could make a pizza from scratch. I did! It was beautiful, smelled good...when I took it out of the oven I hit the edge of the pan on the edge of the stove top. The pizza landed upside down on the open oven door. All I could do was sit in the middle of the kitchen floor crying while my wonderful husband cleaned up the mess!
