Married 5 years, daughter Simone is almost 5. Since I became a stay-at-home mom, I love to try new recipes. Best friend is a gourmet cook, so she challenges me.
My favorite things to cook
Whole wheat pasta dishes and bake with mix of wheat and white. I also try to use lean meat. I love to cook lasagna, fresh fish, exotic salads, and fresh bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was an outstanding cook. She grew up on a Louisiana farm so fresh vegetables of several kinds were a staple. She also loved to cook Southern with healthy twists.
My cooking triumphs
Using fresh herbs while still growing in the pot. They are the cheapest, tastiest, and healthiest in my meals. Hubby was resistant, but he's come around.
My cooking tragedies
Watching TV while trying to cook. Eventually, something burns!
