Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins. ~ Charles Stanley
Ummm Mushrooms! This is a classic mushroom preparation that we learned in school and as you might have guessed ~ I don't really do it the way we learned in culinary school, it's a little time consuming for me and the quick version that I go to gives me all the flavor with out all the fuss.
An Italian staple -- Bolognese Sauce. My mom grew up in New Orleans with an Italian mother (my grandmother) she was exposed to classic Italian cooking and the creole cuisine from New Orleans. Then we moved to Texas when I was a child which added another element to the mix -- Tex Mex. So, you might imagine, nothing that I cook is very 'traditional' in the classic sense. I tend to mix up an old favorite with the flavors that I remember blended in, and this is just that -- my version of Bolognese.
