I'm 'Mommy' to an eight-month-old baby and step-mom to a ten-year-old girl, so I'm non-stop--to say the least! I love life and traveling just as much as I love cooking. Although I live in the city, my heart is in the country, surrounded by horses, cows, and pets.
My favorite things to cook
I love hearty, flavorful meals. I don't do tons of sweets, but those that I fall in love with turn into repeats. :) I'm a Southern cook from south Louisiana, so I love delicious Cajun cuisine with a passion. I've also spent some time abroad, so I've tuned my palate for other flavors too, my favorite of which is French food. You simply can't go wrong with French food (or France!)! I've been to Morocco, Benin, and Jamaica, in addition to France, so I've grown to love dishes from each of those places.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love the holiday season because my mom and I always cook up a storm during this time of year. I also have fond memories of helping my grandma make an endless number of sweet potato pies during the holiday season. I miss being able to do that now. But, I'm looking forward to creating new cooking traditions with my own baby girl.
