Brynn Joachim, or the LSU Foodie, is known for her mouth-watering Facebook dinner posts. But what most people do not realize is that several years ago, she could not cook at all. Lean Cuisine was her go to dinner. Fast forward to being the wife of a casino host and five nights a week as a “dinner widow.” She had to learn to cook. After many, many, many hours of Food Network and food magazines, Brynn honed her knife skills and menu planning into what she hopes inspires others to get in the kitchen. Bon appetit!
