I'm a serious amateur cook who enjoys my forays into the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Favorites are cajun (jambalaya, gumbos, etc.) and Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
Standing Rib Roast dinner on Christmas Day for the extended family (about 25 people).
My cooking triumphs
I'm known for my Jambalaya, and pork dishes.
My cooking tragedies
First time I tried to make a roux I burned it and didn't even know it until we tasted the dish I used it in. I also made a mess years ago of a Cornish Game hen recipe that I prepared for my college age son and his girlfriend.
