Creole Shrimp and Pasta Meuniere

Rating: 4.5 stars 40
This recipe is one of my favorites, because the taste of the shrimp doesn't get lost in the sauce. The sauce has just a hint of a kick, and really enhances the shrimp. Just wonderful...enjoy!!

Asian Chicken Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 615
A perfect salad for leftover BBQ, boiled, broiled or baked chicken. A very crunchy salad with a tasty sweet Asian-style dressing. The kids love it too! The Chinese rice noodles are of the cellophane type and can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores. They are often in rectangle form and in clear packaging.

Fruit and Vegetable Pork

Rating: 4.5 stars 72
I had apples that needed using and a small can of sauerkraut in my cupboard and went from there. A little different, delicious and so easy. The sauerkraut, apples and brown sugar give the chops a sweet and sour flavor.

Best Ever Jalapeño Poppers

Rating: 4.5 stars 1181
Gooey cheese and zesty jalapeños delight in each bite of these poppers!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 552
This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor. Season with hot pepper sauce if you like.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Rating: 5 stars 2095
This is the best salad I've ever eaten and I make it all the time. It is tangy from the blue cheese, fruity from the pears, and crunchy from the caramelized pecans. The mustard vinaigrette pulls it all together.

Fried Soft-Shell Crab

Rating: 4.5 stars 42
These crabs are fried to a light crisp, and you can eat the whole crab. It is my favorite food.

Pan Fried Whole Trout

Rating: 4.5 stars 61
There couldn't be a better way to prepare freshly caught wild brook trout. Serve with a side of creamy mashed potatoes and steamed Swiss chard.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Étouffée

Rating: 5 stars 583
An authentic Louisiana recipe with a rich and spicy fresh tomato based roux with fresh garlic, bell peppers, celery and onions mixed with crawfish and shrimp. A little time consuming but well worth it!! Serve over steamed rice with hushpuppies and/or crackers on the side.
