I love to be present to people; listen to them. I enjoy quiet moments too, just listening to music or reading. Dancing is a joy too.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking healthy tasteful foods. I really like making up my own recipes. It's a fun challenge to look in the pantry & use whatever I have to create a meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gumbo is a family tradition I will always honor throughout the year. It doesn't have to be cold weather for gumbo. Here is Louisiana we don't have "cold" weather anyway.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked for my In-laws, I was nervous & inexperienced. To save time, I thought I'd prepare roux for a gumbo in a Tuperware dish in the microwave! Not! Before my very eyes, the bowl began to melt! Hot oil & flour in a plastic bowl! Ignorance is not always bliss!
