I'm married with 3 grown girls and 5 grandkids. I work as a home health aide and enjoy working with the elderly. I love cooking and food. I like trying new versions of old favorites. I like to find things I can cook and freeze for my family to be able to eat at their leisure because of the hours I work.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking alot of seafood especially shrimp. Have grown up on all kinds of sourthern dishes but was also introduced to some northern dishes when we lived in Wisconsin and Iowa.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking for the holidays and even though it was usually just for four or five of us I always cooked the traditional meals because I wanted my children to experience these traditions.
My cooking triumphs
I was trying crawfish etoufee for the first and was not sure if I was doing it right but in came out so good that my mom let me cook it from then on
My cooking tragedies
I tryed for years to learn how to make homemade bread but could never get it right. I even wayched my mother-in-law make hers so I could learn her techinique but my bread always came out to hard. I finally resolved to buying frozen bread letting it rise and baking that and my husband is okay with that.
