 This gumbo is deep, rich, and full of complex flavors—it is topped off with an alluring smokiness and a touch of heat. Of course, hot sauce is handy for anyone who wants to kick up the heat in their own gumbo bowl! 

Served over freshly steamed rice, it's topped with green onions, file (ground sassafras leaves), and a delicious hard boiled egg—saturated with gumbo. My Uncle Ken first learned to add hard-boiled eggs to gumbo from his "Bayou buddies" in Louisiana. The eggs are a perfect addition to your gumbo!

Gumbo most likely originated in Southern Louisiana in the 18th century.  Made with a dark roux and the Trinity (celery, onion, bell pepper) or the Holy Trinity (add garlic as well), gumbo combines ingredients and culinary practices of several cultures, including: West African, French, Spanish, German and the Choctaw Indian. 

My secret to rich gumbo is a dark roux! It takes about 45 minutes of cooking time to achieve the right deep, rich color.  To prevent my roux from burning, I lay a Hershey's milk chocolate bar near my cast iron skillet while cooking—periodically matching the roux's color to the the chocolate bar.

Click on the photo above (no enhancements) and take a closer look at the wonderful "chocolate"color!   #gumbo   #cajun   http://www.flip2tasty.com/2014/02/smoked-sausage-chicken-gumbo.html

Sweet potato pie is a delicious jewel of Southern desserts in the United States!  Much like a pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie fills your kitchen with the aroma of cinnamon and allspice! The rich gingersnap crust and streusel topping make this an incredibly flavorful pie!

Sweet potato pie most likely originates from traditional African cuisine and was served as a savory vegetable side in the 18th century.  It wasn't until the 19th century that sweet potato pie was commonly served as a dessert.  http://www.flip2tasty.com/2013/12/sweet-potato-pie-with-gingerbread.html #desserts   #sweetpotatoes   #gingersnaps
