About this Cook
I'm a Southern ex-pat living in Canada. I love Canada, but I really miss authentic Mexican restaurants, decent fried chicken, and real sweet tea.
My favorite things to cook
Traditional Southern fare, Tex-Mex, and Cajun. I'm also interested in Vegan or Lenten recipes for fasting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a child, some of my favorites were Mama's fried salmon patties and chicken 'n' dumplin's.
My cooking triumphs
I rubbed olive oil, rosemary, and garlic into a leg of lamb, and it turned out fall-off-the-bone tender. My husband, who is a lamb-loving Serbian, said it made him want to slap his mama.
My cooking tragedies
Jambalaya in the crock pot. I forgot to rinse the shrimp before I added them at the end, and it made the stew, and my house, stink to high-heaven.

Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew
Even 1 tsp pepper is far too much. I will make it again because I like the textures, and I am sure that the onion, garlic, and veg broth will be enough flavor. Next time I will use 1/2 or 1/4 tsp ground pepper.
