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!
