My favorite things to cook
I love to cook potatoe and chicken dishes,Cous cous is one of my all time favorites. the recipe was handed down to me from my Grandmother, who got it from our middle eastern neighbors. I have a very well rounded pallette :) I use a lot of French herbs, but I do love cajun spices and flavourful curries as well. I like to bake, whether it be a roll cake or a three tiered coconut cake. I like a challenge so I often try new things. I love food in general and am up to try anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything French, anything my Grandmother used to make when I was little. From the buche de noel, coquille St. Jaques, Soupe a l'oseille, Crepes, Escalope a la creme, Paella from the south of France, Les beignets a l'abricot etc...
My cooking triumphs
I have a wonderful fried chicken recipe, and my cous cous is also pretty good. I also have a stuffed pork loin recipe that is out of this world delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I tried my hand at a Gallettes des Rois... Needless to say, it was very difficult and came out completely runny and not at all flaky:(
