Tina Lawson Is All Of Us When It Comes To New Orleans Cuisine  

Everyone’s favorite mama just revealed we’re not the only ones on the struggle bus when it comes to turning down sweets.

Tina Lawson, queen of Instagram, knows good food when she sees it.

The businesswoman, designer and mother of Solange and Beyoncé – who is currently visiting New Orleans — shared a short clip on her popular Instagram account showing some real restraint when it comes to sweets.

Homemade pralines to be exact.

We have to say, it’s the kind of thing any one of us would be caught doing in NOLA. And that’s exactly why we love her.
Live your best life, Mama Tina.
