Author Notes

Having been a seafood retailer in a previous life, I was always
testing, trying and developing recipes for my customers. This one is my son's favorite and I always make it when he comes to town. Sometimes I substitute baby spinach leaves for the broccoli. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
