About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Although I try really hard not to eat desserts too often, I LOVE the instant gratification from my friends & family who eat what I bake. In my opinion, it's REALLY hard to mess up a dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We used to gather at my parents' house every Sunday for a big lunch/dinner. My sisters & I would each bring a dish to contribute & share with everyone. My mom is the best cook of all of us, usually "wingin' it" with creativity that MAY have started with a recipe, but goes somewhere unique & delicious every time. I hope to be as good a cook as she is one day.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe
cajun cooking is not complicated, but everyone else seems to try to make it so. this is just simple and yummy!! fyi, you can just use water if you don't have fish stock on hand, and use your fav cajun seasoning blend if you don't have seafood seasoning. this is one of the most authentic "cajun" recipes i've ever seen!
