About this Cook
I live for the silver lining :-)
My favorite things to cook
A new recipe... I'm glad I have 'go-to' recipes, but I actually get excited over a brand-spankin-new one!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Southern & cajun comfort foods because I'm from Louisiana. Also, island-style foods. Daddy was usually stationed somewhere tropical & I've developed a love for it.
My cooking triumphs
Triumph? Hm, that's a tough call. I'll come back to this one.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. They're usually the result of my ADHD... We'll leave it at that, if you don't mind. :-)

Jalapeno Popper Cups
Firstly, our local WalMart no longer carries the phyllo cups... so I used the frozen sheets of puffed pastry. I also doubled the recipe for 24 servings instead & it was a HUGE hit. I baked the pastry first for about 7 min. then I spooned the mixture on top and baked another 10 min. So good!

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
This is the real deal darlin! But I don't make my own roux anymore. Makes your house smell for days & it's easier to buy. Look for Tony Chachere's products at your grocery store... you'll save yourself a ton of time!
