I live in New Orleans with my wife, Bridget, and my dog, Chopper the poodle. On the weekends, you can find us in Whole Foods, in our kitchen and/or dining out. There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my dog, my blog (

  • Website
  • Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Favorite foods: Living in New Orleans, I have a fondness for creole-soul food. Food comforts me, and creole-soul takes me back to my childhood in North Louisiana where my mama and grandmama made lots of fried, smothered, butter-filled dishes.
  • Last bite on earth: I actually tell my friends this on a regular basis. My last bite on earth would hopefully come in a two-course menu form. First course, my wife's chicken kiev. Second course, my mama's peach cobbler.
