About this Cook
I am a busy Mom with 2 children and a husband who loves to eat. I also teach school.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything, but I really like to make lasagna, gumbo, and thai dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband's family is from Louisiana, so my mother-in-law taught me how to make seafood gumbo and chicken and andouille gumbo.
My cooking triumphs
I made a coconut meringue pie for my Dad who LOVED to eat, and this was his favorite kind of pie. When he took his first bite, he looked at my Mom and said, "our daughter is a phenomenal cook". He died 7 years ago, and I miss him every day!
My cooking tragedies
Once my friend and I decided to make gnocchi from scratch. Since we were also drinking wine, we really messed it up. Unfortunately, we were having additional guests for dinner--we served it, but it was pretty awful!

Cajun Style Stuffed Peppers
This was awesome food for a family that was raised on Louisiana cooking! However, after cooking this, I will make some changes next time. First of all, 2-1/2 cups chicken broth made the stuffing mixture way too soupy. I felt like if I let it "cook until thick" the shrimp would be overcooked and the rice too done, So, I ended up using a slotted spoon to drain off liquid as I stuffed the peppers. I also used less Creole seasoning (I used 2 teaspoons) because I felt like it would be too salty otherwise. I'm glad I made that decision as the final mixture bordered on being a little salty. All in all, though, this was super tasty!

Flank Steak Pinwheels
This rocked! I didn't change a thing. When I first read the recipe, I was afraid that it might turn out too salty, but it didn't. My family wanted to lick their plates.
