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...

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!

Three Berry Pie
Delicious! Increased the sugar and cornstarch as suggested, and used blueberries, BlackBerries, and strawberries. It was a hit at Easter dinner.

Overnight Asparagus Mushroom Strata
This is delicious! And easy. The only change I made was to add about tablespoon of fresh chopped golden Caribbean peppers (seeds and pith removed!) which added a little interesting heat and extra cheddar cheese for the topping.
