Creole Shrimp and Pasta Meuniere
This recipe is one of my favorites, because the taste of the shrimp doesn't get lost in the sauce. The sauce has just a hint of a kick, and really enhances the shrimp. Just wonderful...enjoy!!
Asian Chicken Salad
A perfect salad for leftover BBQ, boiled, broiled or baked chicken. A very crunchy salad with a tasty sweet Asian-style dressing. The kids love it too! The Chinese rice noodles are of the cellophane type and can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores. They are often in rectangle form and in clear packaging.
Fruit and Vegetable Pork
I had apples that needed using and a small can of sauerkraut in my cupboard and went from there. A little different, delicious and so easy. The sauerkraut, apples and brown sugar give the chops a sweet and sour flavor.
Barbequed Thai Style Chicken
Rich, exciting flavors make this grilled chicken an exotic favorite. Arrange cooked chicken pieces on a serving platter lined with salad greens or a banana leaf. Garnish with cilantro (coriander) sprigs and serve with salad or steamed rice.
Dad's Excellent Scallops
Large sea scallops wrapped in prosciutto, basted with butter, and grilled. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce - ketchup, tartar, or cocktail sauce are all great with these.
Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
Authentic Cajun flavor! I grew up in Louisiana and love red beans and rice; these are just like I remember. Serve with Tabasco sauce for a little kick. My family loved to splash a little cider vinegar in each bowl.
Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers
This is a recipe I made by taking the best of three or four popper recipes and combining them to make something that tastes wonderful. A frequent request at my house, and at others. I usually make 100 and put them in the fridge. They don't last long. Adjust the amount of bacon bits and type of shredded cheese to taste. Increase the recipe as necessary! Lots of tests helps to best figure out the way you like it. Be sure to wear rubber gloves while seeding the jalapenos -- they will burn.
These tasty treats make a perfect appetizer or you can serve them as a main dish. For a main dish count on about 15 dumplings per person. Serve with hoisin sauce, hot Chinese-style mustard and toasted sesame seeds.
Easy Red Beans and Rice
This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor. Season with hot pepper sauce if you like.
Red Lentil Curry
This is a rich and hearty lentil curry, great as a main meal rather than as a side dish like the more traditional Indian dhal. Don't let the ingredient list faze you, this really is an easy dish to make. This dish is great served with basmati rice.
Roquefort Pear Salad
This is the best salad I've ever eaten and I make it all the time. It is tangy from the blue cheese, fruity from the pears, and crunchy from the caramelized pecans. The mustard vinaigrette pulls it all together.
