Hi everyone! I'm Mary Beth and I'm new to eGullet.  I found Pinterest lacking in higher caliber recipes so I went in search of something better and found this forum.  I consider myself an above average home cook but there is always room to learn more.  My baking skills could definitely use some improvement. I'm always after authentic recipes from around the world; the more traditional, the better! I have a soft spot for cajun food and make a pretty mean red beans and rice.   I'm currently in Colorado with my fiance and our 3 dogs.  We love traveling and mostly travel just to eat.  I've learned a lot from this group already and can't wait to learn more!

Welcome, indeed! When you travel, as you are now, do you stay in places with kitchens and cook for yourselves, or do you eat out, or are you traveling in an RV of some sort with a portable kitchen? However you do it, we love seeing the food and reading about the flavors.

 

I'd love to learn about your red beans and rice. I love the stuff too, but my last attempt (okay, it was red beans and orzo, with no meat) was decidedly flat. I was in a hurry, and didn't pay enough attention to the seasonings. Salsa fixed it but I need a better grip on the basic seasonings that should go into the dish. 

 

If you come up with questions about how to use the forums or where to find (or post) something, feel free to ask a host (I am one). The Help files can be useful, as well.
