Hey ya’ll, I’m Vanessa or Nessa the quirky girl behind The Creole Flamingo!
A little about me: I was born and raised in south Louisiana in a small town called New Roads in Pointe Coupee parish. Which is west of Baton Rouge (as they say back home…”Across the Mississippi River”). In 2011, I transplanted to Music City – Nashville, Tennessee. In Nashville is where I met my husband, who swept me off of my feet and we tied the knot in October 2017. It’s just us and my 10-year old furbaby, Phoebe. I’m a housewife, cook, blogger/writer and enjoying my new home in Clarksville, TN.
When I’m not occupying myself with housewife or writing duties:
Love drinking a good glass of wine (stay tune for future posts on pairing wine with food).
Coffee is everything
RealityTV is a guilty pleasure
HGTV gives me decorating fever
Food Network & almost any cooking show always motivate me to try something new. My favorite shows are The Pioneer Woman; Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Iron Chef America and Guy’s Big Bites
Attending a live music concert and jamming to music while cooking gives me life
