I feel that I am the prototypical modern American mom... because just like many of you, I wear many hats during the day as I juggle my responsibilities. During "work" hours, I work as a professor of Anatomy and Physiology at a private Christian University. When I get home, the real work begins as the mother of four beautiful children (3 boys and 1 girl). I grew up in South Louisiana where the best food in the world is routinely brought from the garden and the water, and put on the table. Everyone in my family of origin is a wonderful cook, so I guess it is just natural that I show my love to my family through food. I love cooking and eating... and teaching my children the art and techniques of being in the kitchen.
