Although I grew up in Boston, my parents were both raised in Louisiana. The result is that I’m some sort of weird mix of New England and Southern culture — the kind of person who loves the Patriots, the Red Sox and gay marriage, but who also says “Sir” and “Ma’am” and knows how to cook a beautifully golden-brown Creole roux.
I’m of the Rachel Ray school of people who love to cook but don’t much care for baking or desserts (mostly because I’m bad at it). I like old-fashioned warm, spicy, hearty dishes — and I always prepare something really old-school and delicious on Sunday night for dinner. On the other hand, I’m also into eating healthy (lean protein, low fat, whole grains, and lots of veggies) so I also like to share any dishes or ideas I have for cooking quick, good-for-you dinners during the week.
This page will hopefully help you navigate the recipes I’ve covered before and also give you a chance to comment down below – if you have any questions, requests, suggestions, or your own recipes to add.
