A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
This recipe was given to me by my Mother who lives on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I have to throw a party each time I make this, it needs to be shared with others! Serve over rice and garnish with parsley and green onion.
A Southern dish that has been sharing the supper table for years. This rice dish will have you coming back for more. Here in the Northwest people ask me all the time "What is Jambalaya?" I reply saying it is seasoned rice with your favorite type of meat.
My Great-great grandmother's recipe, modified over 4 generations. I still can't believe it was FINALLY written down! The gumbo should be thin but not watery. P.S .-- I have a 3-gallon pot that I use to cook this and it is usually about 3/4 full. (Make sure you know the basics of making roux before you try this. If the roux is not dark brown, the gumbo will not have the rich taste necessary to give it that special taste). This is good for several days. It can also be frozen and reheated. Enjoy!
This is my vegan rendition of an old New Orleans classic, I was told these beans and rice were the real thing by four representatives of an old Creole community in New Orleans. Try for yourself.
Spicy Cajun flavor in less time than it takes to get a haircut.

If you would like to add a bit of flavor feel free to add a splash (1 teaspoon) of your favorite barbeque sauce!! Serve and enjoy! Better yet, serve, neglect to tell guests about the overwhelming spice, and then laugh while they eat it!
Want to know how to fry up the perfect southern catfish? This classic recipe dips the fish fillets in mustard and hot sauce before breading with seasoned corn flour.
A wholesome, yet spicy Cajun rice dinner. Great for picnics and family get-togethers. Consider that the sausage, creole seasoning,low sodium broth, and canned tomatoes all contain sodium. so add any salt to taste. I use none. also, the Creole seasoning is to taste, i use Tony's(R). Finally, one teaspoon of cayenne makes this dish somewhat spicy, especially the next day. I usually add a little more. I love spicy food. Enjoy.
Packed full of spicy andouille sausage and chicken breast, this one-dish pasta meal is a rib-sticker! Spice it up to your taste with Louisiana hot sauce and your favorite Cajun seasoning blend.
This is not an instant meal, but since no canned or "quickie" style meal has ever graced my table, I offer this one. It is done using traditional methods, but is well worth the time spent in preparation. You've never tasted anything like this, unless you've eaten red beans and rice along the Lafouche Bayou, in a town called LaRose, LA, that is. When all is ready, put a large scoop of rice in the bottom of a bowl, cover with red beans, butter some bread and crack your favorite beverage.
This is a recipe that I stumbled across when I was looking for something different with stuffing. It's delicious and full of spicy flavor.
