Wife, Mom, and Grandma. Married 45 years, have 5 kids, 3 kids in law, and 12 awesome grandchildren! Love to cook and try new things!!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are dinners. I love coming up with new and exciting ways to spice up old recipes. I especially enjoy slow cooker meals, soups, stews, etc. Have a ball with smoking and deep frying now and then.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad's tacos and my grandmas apple pie are two of my favorites, however I think the family favorite is my mom-in-law's file Gumbo!
My cooking triumphs
I very rarely have a dish that doesn't turn out good. Over the years I have learned how to temper seasonings and mix and match ingredients to create a fabulous meal.
My cooking tragedies
Couldn't cook a thing when I first got married. Tried red beans and rice, burned the beans (yuk!). Made Chicken and Dumplings. Dumplings were dough and chicken was raw. Much improvement over the next 45 years!!!
