Cajun Shrimp Chowder

We are hunkered down as the arctic blast is passing through.  Soup is on deck for sure. We will be warming up with one of my soup creations. I cooked this Chowder a few weeks ago and my family loved it. This chowder was on the table in less than 30 minutes. So good.

White Beans Wednesday

Growing up in Louisiana my family would prepare White beans every Wednesday. This created the white beans Wednesday. My husband grew up the same way and he is always happy when I make this dish for him. I’m not raising my kids that way, but we do love White beans occasionally. One of meat that we love in our White beans is pork tails. I know everyone won’t appreciate this delicious delicacy. But don’t knock it till you try it. 😂😂😋😋

Jazz Kitchen Downtown Disney

As we were planning out our last trip, I was researching food spots and was shocked to see that there was a new Louisiana style restaurant that just opened in Downtown Disney. This restaurant Jazz Kitchen Coastal Grill and Patio. Offering a modern, upscale twist to Creole dishes. This restaurant is serving up Louisiana classics that are elevated! This restaurant stays true to what New Orleans cuisine is all about. Ralph Brennan is the driving force behind this amazing restaurant right in the heart of downtown Disney.

Ralph Brennan is known for many restaurants but most importantly Brennan’s in New Orleans. He has been a driving force in the culinary world for years and years. It’s no surprise that this restaurant is so well done. It’s like being whisk away to French quarter New Orleans as you walk into the courtyard of the restaurant. From the jazz music to the smiling faces welcoming you in, you feel like you’re in New Orleans.

1929 Po-boy Kitchen

My family and I visited 1929 several months ago. As I was planning my content for the next few weeks, I made sure to add this one to the list. 1929 is the home of the Oxtail Yakamein. What is this you ask, Oxtail Yakamein is a beef noodle soup with creole seasonings.

Being from Louisiana, I have to admit that I had never eaten this until I visited 1929. I only heard about Yakamein when I was watching a Netflix Show called “Street Food”. They shared all about this New Orleans style dish.

My husband has heard of it and had eaten it prior to us dining at 1929. But he went to college in New Orleans and lived and worked in New Orleans for several years.

In addition to Yakamein, 1929 serves several Louisiana classics like red beans and rice, poor boys, seafood and much more.

Cajun Collard Green & Cabbage

I have a confession, I’m not much of a vegetable eater? I know, I know, yes I need vegetables. But I have a few that I like. Collard greens are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, and calcium. In addition, rich in vitamin K, and a good source of iron, vitamin B-6, and magnesium. Collard greens are very good for you. This is something that I do eat.

Cabbage is a good source of Vitamin C, high in fiber and Vitamin K.

Collard greens + Cabbage = a very nutritious dish.

Today I’m sharing my Cajunified Collard Greens and cabbage dish.

Very simple and easy to make.

Cajun Pizza

Most of the pizzas I make will not include a traditional red sauce. Fun fact about me, I have acid reflux so I often avoid tomato based sauces on my pizza.

This new pizza creation is my Cajun Pizza. This one has a shrimp scampi sauce as the base. This pizza was superb.
