I am a nurse but when I have spare time I enjoy getting in the kitchen and cooking some favorite recipes or occassionally I will create new favorites.
There is little that brings me more pleasure than to see people enjoy my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook italian, southern or Louisiana cuisine.
I love cooking the different sauces called for in italian dishes that bring the pasta to life.
I was raised in the south and so those dishes; collard greens, fried chicken and such, come almost natural to me.
My mother is cajun french and has passed down some wonderful family recipes. I am still prefecting my gumbo but am fairly close to the taste of hers. The rue can make or break the entire dish.
My cooking tragedies
As a young woman still trying to master the art of cooking, I was told by an in-law that my cooking was a secret family joke. At that moment I was determined to become the best cook I could possibly be. I have come far since that time and now have requests for my meals.
