About this Cook
I have Celiac Disease, so everything I cook has to be adapted to gluten free. If a recipe is not already naturally gluten free, I will rate it listing the modifications I have had to make so that it's safe for Celiacs.
My favorite things to cook
I like easy, quick recipes that taste good (who doesn't?)!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm what you would call a "late bloomer". I have had absolutely NO guidance at all. My mom's specialty was scrambled eggs. I myself didn't start cooking on a regular basis until the last few years (why bother, with all the fabulous restaurants there are in New Orleans?). Ironically, one thing living in New Orleans taught me was how to identify flavors, which has helped me considerably.
My cooking tragedies
I still can't make a perfectly cooked rice, and sometimes, I overcook the pasta (RICE pasta, that is!).

Chocolate Banana Martini
Lo and Behold, I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I use banana liqueur for making Bananas Foster, but never thought it would make a very good cocktail drink. Had I not had everything on hand, I don't think I ever would have tried this, otherwise, but it was very pleasant, rich, and enjoyable. Nice alternative to white russians. I will definitely make these again!

A little sweet for my taste as-is. Using Cranberry/Raspberry juice and juice from a fresh lime (rather than reconstituted) gave it a very pleasing tartness to offset the sweetness. After those modifications, it was a sure "5" star.
