the first dessert I baked for my then-fiance was red velvet cake, and he was hooked...I love to cook, and my 3 daughters are following in my footsteps. This is a collection of recipes that we love. Feel free to comment - good, bad, indifferent - if you try any, let me know how they turn out.

Spice Mixture for Gumbo

My husband uses this spice mixture to rub on chicken before roasting, and then adds it to the gumbo broth itself:

1 tbsp. onion powder
2 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. oregano
1 tbsp. basil
1/2 tbsp thyme leaves
1/2 tbsp. black pepper
1/2 tbsp. white pepper
1/2 tbsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tbsp. celery seed
2 1/2 tbsp. sweet paprika

Combine in food processor and pulse until well-blended, or mix thoroughly in large bowl.

*tip: you can buy small quantities of spices from a health-food or bulk-foods store.
