How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
I know its been a minute since I last wrote but in my defense I have been working ten hour days, building my own empire on a computer that finally crapped on me last week. Now I am handy-capped with the beta of all computers, a PC. Blah.
I made Shrimp Etouffee’ for a southern style banquet in 1986. This one is just Louisiana Shrimp recipe I have. The shrimp are great! Flavorful, tender, great! I figured what better dish to give the Shrimp a test run than the New Orleans Cuisine classic, Etouffee. Be forewarned, this dish is not for the health conscious; as a matter of fact, you may want to keep a defibrillator in the dining room. There’s butter and plenty of it!

T-bones (or porterhouse if you prefer) have the most succulent, juicy, steak flavor you have ever tasted, served with Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes shown below, roasted corn or grilled vegetables this will complete the perfect meal for an outdoor event.

The Twitterverse is yammering about Miley Cyrus…again. This time it’s about how skinny she is. Some are saying she has an eating disorder, to which she quickly fires back: “For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!”
Spring is here and fruit and vegetables are growing and stuff. Time to take your shoes off and get in the kitchen, women! (and men!)
Beware of the “Whole Foods Effect” and plant your own fancy greens.
