About this Cook
I grew up outside of New Orleans. What a place to develop a love of great food!
My favorite things to cook
Cajun/Creole food-especially jambalaya.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Thanksgiving my mom gives my sisters and I each a dish to be responsible for making. I can still remember the first time my little sister tried to make mashed potatoes and they went flying out of the mix master all over the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I like to think they all are, but I'm sure they aren't. So as long as my husband and friends will eat it, I think it's a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Any time I try to bake cookies or a pot roast.

Jim Kaczmarek's Chili
I really wished I had read the reviews before making this. It had way too much salt; even the salt loving husband said so. I used no salt added tomato sauce and that didn't help cut the salt factor at all. I think this would definitely be an amazing recipe if the TBSP of salt was omitted. I will make it again and maybe add a can of Rotel to kick it up a little.

Winter Blossom's Often Requested Ham Salad
Made it almost exactly as written. I'm not a huge fan of raw onion taste & have never used dried onion so I cut back on the amount used. Made it around noon for dinner that night. I found it to be a bit salty but served it on Hawaiian bread and it helped to balance it out.

Barbecued Shrimp
Excellent recipe! I used frozen shrimp that had the shell on, but had been deveined. The only changes I plan on making the next time I make it is to add more hot sauce for some kick.
