    Gumbo is one of those dishes that is hard to perfect when made from scratch. I learned to make it from my ex sister-in-law who learned from her grandmother (born and bred Cajun). But, even learning from her I still screw it up from time to time (which is why I only make it from scratch twice a year. haha)
    A key to a great gumbo is the roux, and standing at the stove for ten minutes making it isn’t fun….another key ingredient is okra. But the key to a perfect taste is to let the gumbo sit off the burner for about a half hour or so in order to let all the seasonings soak in.
    Dang, I’m getting hungry now. lol
    Glad your gumbo came out well.

    Very nice! Last night I made some divine potato soup. Today I made s’mores cupcakes and marshmallow frosting! They’re pretty tasty!

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
