About this Cook
I'm a Registered Nurse that is not working at this time due to an illness. Enjoying my time at home caring for my children, sweet hubby,and my dear mother. We are a family that loves the Lord and very proud Americans!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook comfort foods, dishes that I grew up with. Learned from my mother and grandmother. Our family has a rich Cajun French heritage and it shows in our cooking. Most of my favorites include seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We cook rich, delicious meals. No cutting corners in the kitchen. Lots of love has always gone into meals prepared in my home, growing up and even now with my family. Always lots of visiting and laughter around the kitchen while I cook just as when my mother and grandmother cooked. Wonderful memories and traditional foods.
My cooking triumphs
I can cook anything I set my mind to, might take me several attempts but I will get it right. Not sure what a "cooking triumph" is. But the way my family eats must say something for the way I cook!!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Lots of fresh veggies, and seasonings. Good cuts of beef and pork. I don't like to rush in the kitchen, good flavors take time.....

Fig Preserves
Great recipe! These came out just like I remember my mothers. The figs held there shape and didn't turn to mush, and the syrup was light and thin. I didn't cook quite as long as recipe called for because I don't like the figs to fall apart.
