Welcome to my blog. The purpose of this blog is to share recipes that I’ve compiled over the years. I’ve collected recipes from many sources and the cuisine of Louisiana, where I live now, has provided inspiration for much of my cooking. ┬áThese correspond to the blog posts in my companion blog, beyoundgumbo.com

My experience as a registered dietitian and service management and catering. has provided a  source for my cooking ideas, along with traveling and living in different parts of the country.
