I am a self taught cook. I was raised among good cooks all my life so it must have rubbed off on me!
My favorite things to cook
Seafood, Cajun meals, Mexican, and Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Always a big seafood gumbo on Christmas eve, Turkey on Thanksgiving with cornbread dressing, A big ham on Easter and BBQ for the Fourth of July!
My cooking triumphs
Pretty much anything I cook except...see below.
My cooking tragedies
cookies, cakes and pies are things I have never been successful with.
