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.
