About this Cook
I'm a college student in animal science who loves to cook for friends and family. I often daydream about parties I can throw as an excuse to prepare food!
My favorite things to cook
I love to prepare whole meals or gift plates for holidays. I especially love to prepare christmas and thanksgiving dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad is king of cajun cuisine, my mom the belle of soul food. I've got it good on both sides :) I think our tradition, unlike Iowa where I go for school, relies heavily on savory and spicy flavors.
My cooking triumphs
I prepared Thanksgiving dinner as a senior in high school and everything came out great. It was so much fun. I even made two pies.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to prepapre dinner for church youth group and had to fight with a wedding party for space. The youth pastor also got very impatient and tried to microwave the fried chicken into doneness. We had soggy fried chicken,lumpy potatoes, and burnt black eyed peas.

Marian's Pumpkin Soup
This recipe was so fun to make. I tried it once by the book, and once substituting in half and half and veggie broth and both times it came out great. When I make this for kids I cut back on the onion and blend this on high for a super cramy texture. They love the peanut butter! five stars!
