About this Cook
I am a very free-spirited person and have very diverse interests. I enjoy people. Watching them, being around them, entertaining them.
My favorite things to cook
I was raised down south and love the Southwest Louisiana menu as well as all of the other comforting fattening foods that gather flocks to the table. I love making everything from the drinks to the dessert with coffee and everything in between.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was AWESOME in the kitchen and I learned a great deal from her. Family was big to her and she made sure that we all had full bellies every time we left her house. She had 7 kids who would all be there with all of their kids, so you do the math....there were a LOT of people and she always made EVERY gathering a major one. Full spread on any given weekend (or weekday during the summer).
My cooking triumphs
1st New year's party in 2001/2002 planned a party for 30 (rsvp), ended up with about 50. To date, I still get compliments on the chicken that was served and the "zombie punch" as well as the mini-bites of a spread that I had to "stretch".

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie
I've made this recipe twice and my daughter made it once on her own after that and she's 10 years old. This recipe is easy and SUPER delicious. Keeping this in the back pocket for those quick, go-to desserts when I'm in a pinch for time but want something delicious.
