Now that we are into the winter season, what better meal on a cold, rainy or snowy night than chili?

Challenging Wine Pairing: Red Beans and Rice

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Red beans and rice is a favorite “Louisiana” dish. It is a traditional Creole dish; however, over the years, it has become very generally used by everyone.

Challenging Wine Pairing: Bacon

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

Bacon? Isn’t that a breakfast item or perhaps a sandwich ingredient? For most people, that is the case; however, in our family, crispy bacon is an entree that we enjoy with our southern dinners—not just for breakfast or on a BLT. One of our favorite meals is bacon, black eyed peas, fried okra, corn on […]

Years ago when I was teaching school in Houston and needed to get an evening meal ready after work, one of my standby meals to prepare was beef stroganoff. My version has evolved over the years to be a quick and easy recipe and seems to get quicker and easier as the years go by. […]
