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.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am this season with my Baby on her first Christmas. All of the joys of youth are my gift from my daughter, seeing Christmas, and everything else for that matter, with new, young eyes.

I'm also eating with new found decadence...check out my Filet Mignon topped with Fried Oysters and Bearnaise sauce. Wow, I should be ashamed of myself, for such a sinful meal, but as it turns out, I'm proud to share such a caution to the wind recipe, in such a worrisome world. Lets share some enjoyment, throw away the worry, and have a very Merry Christmas!

I made hors d'oeuvre sized Natchitoches Meat Pies the other day, a holiday tradition for me. I served these with a Creole Mustard Aioli as a dipping sauce, but they're just fine by themselves. Here is the post including the recipe!

Turkey Bone Gumbo Recipe at Nola Cuisine

Turkey Bone Gumbo
Originally uploaded by Danno1.
I made a Turkey Bone Gumbo with my leftover Turkey Carcass, meat, and dressing. It's a wonderful way to utilize some of those Thanksgiving leftovers, I make this dish every year, a day or two after Thanksgiving.

I used leftover dressing in place of the rice in this recipe.
