Born a New-Yorker, I have lived in New Orleans since 2002. I have really grown to love the cuisine here. I love cooking and going out to dinner at some of the finest restaurants this city has to offer. I am a Spanish teacher, foodie, celebrity gossip-monger, and spinster cat lady (with a sense of humor, of course).
My favorite things to cook
I hate to brag, but I make an awesome french onion soup au gratin. My smothered pork chops are the most tender! My Italian meatloaf is pretty darn tasty. My spaghetti sauce with meatballs and hot sausage is my boyfriend's favorite.
I really enjoy cooking anything Italian.
My cooking triumphs
Family recipes that were staples in my household:
poached salmon, prime rib, spaghetti and meatballs with italian sausage, creamed pearl onions at Thanksgiving, and apple pie.
My cooking tragedies
I have not found the perfect pot roast recipe yet, so I have ruined quite a few dinners...
