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.

From Woodstoves to Microwaves...Cooking with Entergy

The good folks at Mr. Lake's Nonpompous New Orleans Food Forum suggested a cookbook to me, From Woodstoves to Microwaves...Cooking with Entergy. It's a great one with a lot of "lost" Louisiana recipes, ones that have been forgotten over the years, the kind that I like. If you click the title of this post you can download it for free in Adobe Acrobat form, great stuff. Thanks again to Schatze and the folks at Mr. Lake's for the great suggestion!

Texas Chef's Bread Pudding Recipe

Check out my good friend Bill Moran's Bread Pudding recipe at his new blog Texas Chef! I recently picked up one of Bill's cookbooks, Cocina Ranchera. The first half centers on traditional Mexican Ranch Cooking, and the latter half features Bill's creations based on the traditional ingredients. I really enjoyed the historical information as much as the recipes. In my humble opinion, the worst cookbooks are the ones that only contain recipes, Cocina Ranchera does not fall into that category. One of the highlights of the cookbook for me was the section on Chili Peppers. If you love Southwest Cooking, Check out Cocina Ranchera! By the way, this is not an advertisement, I'm just passing on a really good cookbook; from one cookbook lover to another.
I've been talking to Bill via Email for a few weeks now, and I have to tell you, He also knows his stuff in the New Orleans Cuisine department, as well as Southwest! If you love these Cuisines give him a shout at Texas Chef, I'm sure he would be glad to hear from you!

Hurricane Dinner at YatCuisine

Check out YatCuisine's tips for cleaning out your Fridge and Freezer as Dennis approaches. By the way, doesn't Dennis sound like too nice of a guy to knock your house down? They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel for these names. No wonder no one wants to flee. Oooh, Dennis is coming. Ivan was a good name for a hurricane, unfortunately he lived up to his name.
