Get a Taste of Lafayette,  Louisiana with this eggsceptional recipe for Cajun Eggs Benedict! +Louisiana Cajun Recipes 
This past week I spent time in Lafayette, Louisiana tasting my way through what Southern Living readers awarded "The Tastiest Town in the South 2012", and Livibilty named "Top 10 Foodie Cities in 2013." On a breakfast tour I was introduced to The French Press, an upscale bistro in a historic building offering Louisiana classics...reinvented. I began the morning with Cajun Benedict, an incredibly creative dish packed with a powerful combination of...

Amazing Chimichurri Sauce over Grilled Pork Loin and a Spectacular +Sutter Home Winery Inc #Giveaway! #30AEATS  +30A +Theresa Greco +Milisa Armstrong +Donna Currie 
My husband Phil is in an all male half-century old wine group called "Wino's",  where you are voted in when someone departs, and it was his turn to host this weekend. The host typically serves and assortment of fruits and cheeses, as well as a dish to snack on. Of course the task fell to me, something I didn't mind at all. Lately, I have been a bit obsessed with chimichurri, and I thought it would be the perfect accompaniment to my Sutter Home Me...

Crawfish. One of the food world's blessings bestowed upon us. I'm thankful for whoever decided that it was a good idea to pull a creature from the mud, wash it off and eat it. Though called a crawfish or seafood "boil", it is really more of a simmer & poach process. This allows the tails to soak up all the spicy seasonings, and the flavors of the other ingredients to marry. Everyone has their go-to recipe for a crawfish boil. It's like gumbo, the...

Louisiana Grillades & Grits. Comfort food at its finest! #30AEATS   #SouthWalton  +Louisiana Cajun Recipes  +New Orleans 
Remember a few days ago, when I was having that reflective moment on the beach, writing about Cajun Shrimp Stew, and thinking about the fall? Well, ditch that, because the temps are back in the 90’s, the sun is out, and the Gulf of Mexico is shimmering! I am still trying to keep my fall spirit alive, but I am not ready to set out a pumpkin just yet. I have seen a few, mostly from our Snowbirds that visit the area to get away from their colder cli...
