About this Cook
I'm back in New Orleans now and loving the access to seafood! I think the stint in Uganda tested my cooking creativity (with a lack of ingredients was used to having on hand) and now I'm in cook heaven. I'm also very lucky to work in a place that has an amazing teaching kitchen and a program where celebrity chefs come in to do demonstations. I'm learning tons!
My favorite things to cook
Soups and stews are at the top of the list as the variations are endless and the only limitation is your imagination (and what's in the fridge...) I enjoy baking but it definitely is not my strong suit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am a child of the fifties so my family's cooking traditions centered around cans. Could be why I am such a fresh food fanatic now!
My cooking tragedies
I lived in a communal home in the eighties with some amazing bakers. I watched them toss bread together with supernatural powers. I tried it once and made a loaf of bread so hard, so dense, so totally inedible that I buried it in the garden...

Best in Show Blackberry Cobbler
I am standing in my kitchen trying to figure out exactly what I did wrong. The only change I made was to substitute fresh blueberries for the blackberries. It took well over an hour to bake and when I took it out the berries were lying on top looking kind of gooey (along with the rest of the cobbler). Do the berries need to be shoved into the batter? I'm not going to toss it out, it certainly is not the best in show around here.

Creamy Mushroom Soup
Simple and delicious! I used the immersion blender to smooth it out and added a dash of cumin for depth. Really, really good. (Also veggie broth to keep it meat-free).

Cream of Mushroom Soup I
Delish! Didn't have sherry so added a dash of nutmeg and a dash of cumin. "A delicately nuanced soup with layers of intricate flavors for the discerning gourmet." I made that up myself. It's just real, real good!
