Zucchini con Queso, Chicken & Zucchini con Queso

Zucchini con Queso, Chicken & Zucchini con Queso by Michelle M

I love Mexican food almost as much as I love Cajun & Creole food. When I lived in Texas, I loved eating at authentic, mom-and-pop, hole-in-the-wall joints.Especially the little joint where I first tried guacamole salad, had true enchiladas and tacos with real Mexican cheesewhere the owner/matriarch pointed to a table and said "you…

Chips for Supper! {Taco Casserole}

Chips for Supper! {Taco Casserole} by Michelle M

I have a tendency to eat like a kid.Dessert is the best part of any meal.Hand held food is always fun.Cheesy is good.Get where I'm going?So if chips can be turned into a meal, I'm gonna give it a whirl.Taco Casserole is like a pan of layered nachos, all beefy, cheesy, sour creamy and with loads of green onion (my favorite part). It's…

Chile Relleno Burgers. Because You Need Them.

Chile Relleno Burgers. Because You Need Them. by Michelle M

I could tell you that I'm actually ahead of the game for once.That this is all about Cinco de Mayo coming up in a couple of weeks.But you know that's a big fat lie, right?The only holiday I'm ever really prepared for is Mardi Gras.Even then it's iffy.These chile relleno burgers come from two places.1. When my friend Evelyn busted out…

Southern Salad {Sweet Pea Salad}

Southern Salad {Sweet Pea Salad} by Michelle M

We eat a lot of salads down here.Potlucks, BBQs, family gatherings.Salads are always on the table.Southern salads are more about fruit and Jello and macaroni and mayonnaise than lettuce and tomato.I'm not big on Jello salads.It's taken me a while to like mayo based salads too.Sweet Pea Salad isn't something I grew up eating, but it is…

Fried Crawfish Po'Boys and a Po'Boy Cookbook Review

Fried Crawfish Po'Boys and a Po'Boy Cookbook Review by Michelle M

Po'Boys are one of my favorite foods. Nothing beats a good, dressed* Po'Boy for supper on a Saturday night.Roast Beef Po'Boys dripping with debris gravy* are my favorite. But other classics like fried shrimp, catfish, oyster, or crawfish are ok with me too.I tend to pick straight on classics then quirk things up with a flavored…

Spring Dessert {Old Fashioned Cajun Tarte à la Bouille}

Spring Dessert {Old Fashioned Cajun Tarte à la Bouille} by Michelle M

Tarte à la Bouille, or custard pie, is an old time Cajun dessert.It's a simple thing, made with simple ingredients...like most old fashioned Cajun dishes.And like most classic Cajun dishes, it's the simplicity and honesty in the food that makes it something special.This pie is made with what we call "sweet dough." The sweet dough…

Blackened Shrimp Po'Boys and Blackened Sweet Potato Fries

Blackened Shrimp Po'Boys and Blackened Sweet Potato Fries by Michelle M

So I have to tell you something.I hate sandwiches.Growing up, I called them "barfwiches."All white bread and gummy in my lunchbox.Note: I grew up in the 80s. Sometimes things were totally rad. But mostly everything either gagged you with a spoon or made you barf.But Po'Boys...Po'Boys are not sandwiches.No duh.And they are one of my…

Spring Fish Fry {Fried Lemon Garlic Fish}

Spring Fish Fry {Fried Lemon Garlic Fish} by Michelle M

I think it's safe to say...it's Spring.And before all you ice scraping, snow-bound peeps get jealous, know that Spring down here only lasts approximately 2 weeks and 3 days.Then we're smacked in the face with summer for at least 7 months.Give or take.Spring means lots of seafood caught in waters that are warming up and lots of seafood…

See Ya in the Gumbo # 174

See Ya in the Gumbo # 174 by Michelle M

Welcome to See Ya in the Gumbo potluck party.My great grandpa said See ya in the gumbo!instead of "good-bye."It means see ya out there in the mix.Gumbo is a mix of various ingredients.And no two people make it the same way.To "make a gumbo" means much more than cooking. When someone says "I'm making a gumbo," it means family and…
