I'm a full-time mother, wife and musician. I work at home, at church, play shows and write music. Then I go home and cook!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - I like to experiment with different cookies and cakes. My 5yo son loves to help me with that. I'm also interested in time-saving cooking, like slow-cooking and foil packets. Meal planning is a real help to my family too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love visiting my family - we all like to hang out in the kitchen and help the cook! We also love to grill or cook over an open fire. We also own a crawfish farm - I love crawfish! Fried crawfish tails are the best, followed by boiled.
My cooking triumphs
A friend and I made a 25th Anniversary cake with 6 tiers and fully decorated. It looked great. I've also done some very nice birthday cakes, including a carousel for my daughter's 4th birthday.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make my boyfriend (now husband of 13 years) a Chicken Creole - and I'm still not sure what happened. It was so salty! We couldn't even eat it. Fortunately, that was not the first time I cooked for him, so he wasn't scared away!
