I live in Chicago with my family and I love to get involved with tons of activities and projects, I try to finish most of what I start but I think that may be close to impossible.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking cajun foods because I grew up in Louisiana and my mawmaw always cooked like she was feeding the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make a giant pot of jambalaya on my birthday and have people dig into the pot all night and serve themselves, I love to cook a gumbo around xmas and do the same, and I love red beans and sausage on sundays.
My cooking triumphs
I used a recipe of Emeril's to make roasted red snapper with crawfish cream sauce and crabcakes, it was soooo good. I felt like I should open a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
I burned the last jambalaya I made to feed 25people. It was my birthday party and I am usually very critical of my food but for some reason I didn't cancel the party I would just tell people they had no idea what jambalaya is supposed to taste like when they told me it tasted so good. Trust me, it tasted like mesquite jambalaya!
