I live in the Netherlands with my husband, Marco, and 2 year old son, Kevin. They are both huge fans of my cooking. When I'm not expirementing in the kitchen I am a professional singer who occasionally does theater and performs with my own jazz band.
My favorite things to cook
Living in the Netherlands is sometimes a challenge as a cook as some ingredients common in the states are not so readily available here or they just don't exist at all. That said, I still manage to whip up most of my favorite Tex-Mex dishes. I also enjoy stir fry and Italian foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being a creole, I of course love my traditional cajun dishes like gumbo and etoufee. But, the most important ingredients for those dishes are nowhere to be found where I live. I'm dependant on care packages from home!
My cooking triumphs
Introducing fajitas to a whole new group of Dutch fans. They all love them and now some of them even make them at home.
