About this Cook
Hi. I'm Kristen. I'm 22 and in college so I don't get to cook that often but I enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with seafood, especially shrimp. I like baking or making any types of desserts. I also love pasta and rice dishes, A LOT.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm from Southern Louisiana so I guess it's cajun cooking. I love seafood and okra gumbo. It is amazing! Crawfish bisque, vegetable soup, and corn soup are also pretty high up on my list of favorite home cooked meals!
My cooking triumphs
I made awesome shrimp creole once. I like cooking at school then sending pictures back home to my parents (I rarely cook at home)
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make Cinnamon rolls once and didn't even turn on the oven then couldn't figure out why they weren't cooked 10 mins later. (Maybe that's not a tragedy, but oh well)

Very Easy Mushroom Barley Soup
Yummy recipe, but I changed a few things. I used pearled barley, 4 cups chicken broth, 2 cups beef broth, added a can of mixed veggies (i didnt have as many mushrooms to put in), and I added 2 bay leaves to the soup. Turned out great. Hoping it will freeze well.

Barbequed Cabbage
I was also skeptical about this, but I randomly bought some cabbage recently and wanted to use part of it. I have to say, it came out a whole lot better than I thought it would. Definitely don't over-do the soy sauce though. I opened the foil and moved the cabbage around a little in the middle of cooking because the pieces on the top didn't soften like the pieces at the bottom in the soy sauce. (If you do the same, remember all the hot air is going to rush towards the opening, so be careful to avoid burning yourself)

Lemon Chicken Soup II
It was really good. I did add onions, celery, bell pepper, and some corn to it. I think I added a little too much spinach but it tasted fine. :)
