About this Cook
I had just perfected my wonderful pizza crust (Jay's Signiture Pizza crust) when I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. It has changed my whole life and kitchen around. While I'm still trying to get used to my new diet, I have hope that one day I will be able to enjoy many of these gluten-laden recipes in my recipe box with the help of research on the disease.
My favorite things to cook
I love rich, home cooked meals and love to bake even though the ingredients may have changed. I love vegetables and am trying to grow fresh veggies myself at home in my garden. I like mexican and italian foods. I love experimenting with vegetables, fruit, and herbs. . I like using ingredients that normally don't go together. I absolutely cannot cook without Tony Chacere's seasoning. Anyone from Louisiana will understand. I still use recipes that call for flour or bread. I just use gluten free bread mix. It's never the same, but it's better than nothing!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love big holiday meals. I come from a big family so holidays were always a big deal. The casseroles and desserts bring back so many memories for me. They are mostly the same every year.
My cooking triumphs
I am proud of my cheesecake(Chantal's cheesecake recipe) and am asked to bake it frequently. I pretty much don't have too many bad cooking experiences. Most of the recipes on this site are super easy to understand and cook. I don't think I've come across a bad recipe yet from this site.
My cooking tragedies
Recipe Reviews 4 reviews
Curried Chipotle Potato, Spinach and Cheese Wraps
It was way too bland for my taste. Nobody in my house liked it. I had to smother it in salsa so it was edible. The flavors didn't mesh well either.

Spanish Rice Original
This was so stinkin good! I didn't use bacon because I didn't want the fat and I'm not a big bacon fan. It was just like the spanish rice at restaurants! I also added peas and carrtos!
