I'm a wife, mother and grandmother and a southern girl forever. Cooking and eating are what we do! I grew up in Texas and Louisiana, so of course barbecue and cajun are my faves...but I pretty much like it all!
My favorite things to cook
grilled *anything*, jambalaya, gumbo, breakfast, comfort food
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking & decorating Christmas cookies with my kids/grandchildren is the best :) And I love that we each make a special dish to take to my parents' house every Thanksgiving. Coloring Easter eggs is great, too!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking an entire Thanksgiving &/or Christmas feast was a bit intimidating at first, but I do it every year for my husband's side of the family and receive many compliments. So I'd call that a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list! I've been known to set off a few smoke alarms here and there, but no fire (yet!?!)
