New Orleans Cuisine

My Creole & Cajun Recipe Page

This is my blog dedicated to New Orleans & Louisiana cooking! I'll give links to great Creole & Cajun recipes and sites, as well as some of my own recipes. I love talkin' New Orleans, food and otherwise! Incidentally, I'm from Detroit. Go Figure. Lets just say I figured out "what it means, to miss New Orleans" and this site helps ease the pain.

American Red Cross Hurricane Relief

I've been watching the news reports of the devastation, and it's making me sick. The streets of the neighborhoods look like canals with roofs. I still haven't heard from most of my friends from New Orleans, I hope they are alright, and if they are lucky enough to have their lives, their homes may be a different story. I can't imagine losing my home, it's my refuge, my sanctuary. Lets help these folks affected by Hurricane Katrina out, the ones who have lost their sanctuary.

If you are interested in making a contribution to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Relief, here is a link where you can do it! The donations supply hundreds of thousands of victims that were left homeless by Hurricane Katrina with critical necessities.

My prayers are with all of those affected by this disaster, especially those in New Orleans, a city I have visited in three ocassions due to the fact that my sister went to school in Hammond. We have some friends in Hammond and people I have met in my trips in NO, I'm so deeply saddened by what I have seen...I really hope the levees' breaches can be fixed and the cleaning efforts can be started as soon as possible, so the reconstruction of the city and the people's lives can begin.

Kiero, I think we are all shocked and devastated by this. I'm heart sick over this enormous tragedy.

That's great Mona, I think we, like most, just feel so helpless. I don't know what else to do. I hope at least some traffic gets to where donations will be made.
