About this Cook
I don't like to cook, but I do it for my husband and 3 kids. I enjoy baking much more than cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Quick and easy meals with common, cheap ingredients.
My cooking triumphs
The few Cajun dishes that I've mastered on my own. My mother passed away before she could teach me those great family meals, and I'm my own worst critic when I try to "find the taste" I grew up with. So the meals that I've perfected to my childhood memories mean a lot to me.
My cooking tragedies
Same as the triumphs. I would probably enjoy cooking more if I replicate the meals I miss so much.

Smothered Pork Chops
The first time I cooked this, I followed the recipe exactly. It was good then but a little bland. Tonight, I switched it up a little. First, I browned the pork chops (Center Cut Pork Loin was what I had in the freezer.) The chops were seasoned with Tony Chachere's, black pepper, celery powder, and garlic powder. (I didn't have any fresh garlic on hand.) After browning the chops, I put them aside and sauted the onion and a green bell pepper. Then I put the chops in and followed the rest of the recipe. The brown gravy mix I used is the Tony Chachere's brown gravy mix. The seasoning and the brown gravy powder added just the right amount of spice to the gravy and pork chops. I served it with French Bread, corn on the cob, and rice. The family loved it and my husband raved. Will definitely make it again.
