About this Cook
I am a seasoned vet to impromtu dinner parties, and last minute entree requests. I am in my element, in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I am always happy to cook crawfish etouffee, gumbo, gateaux de sucre,or a pig in the ground... anything that reminds me of home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's gotta be a cross between world class cooking, and "down home" cooking. I also love restaraunts "knock off" recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Any meal in which everyone wants seconds,no left overs, and you are asked to make it again...soon!
My cooking tragedies
About 22 years ago, I was making a box cake mix. Instead of using water, I used milk, and had cake run all over the pan into my oven. Whatta rookie! lol

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
It looks delish! After reading the reviews, I tweaked it and used 2 pats of butter, added 2 tablespoons of flour to the soup mix, whisked soup mix into 2 cups of chicken broth. That way, it makes a thicker gravy. Gonna be so good with garlic mashed potatoes,and field pea, with snaps! :)
