About me

Cooking is second nature to me and my passion features Gulf Coast seafood. I like the simple pleasures of home-style meals, the love of local Creole & Cajun food and my enjoyment of Mexican and Western style cooking. Oh, and I love outdoor cooking, not just to past time, but 'cause it's a southern tradition.

Cooking Influences

Licking spoons and bowls made me appreciate good, home made cooking. Living in a small town during my youth, growing up on a farm and appreciating the hard work of family made me who I am today. My mother, grandmother and our cooks are a few of the people who taught me to understand the significance of eating good, homespun foods.

            I'm looking for a recipe for Shrimp & Grits where the grits are actually fried before adding the sauce and shrimp. Any ideas?
