Taco Lasagna

Today, I’m sharing one of the first recipes I’ve made that people actually requested me to make over and over! Taco Lasagna. Definitely not authentic Mexican cuisine, but it’s pretty dang tasty! And it’s perfect for nights when you aren’t in the mood to cook an elaborate dinner. Oh, and the kiddos will love it!

Shrimp Stock

Every Cajun cook knows that a good stock is the heart of an amazing dish. I’ve tried many store bought seafood stocks. NONE of them compare to making it homemade. I love being able to control the flavor I impart into my cooking. One reason our cooking style here in the South is so special

Cottage/Shepherd’s Pie

Cottage/Shepherd’s Pie? I’m gonna explain. Don’t worry! There is lamb in traditional Shepherd’s Pie. Shepherd, sheep, lamb…of course. But, many of us in America opt to use ground beef instead of lamb due to availability and taste preferences. Doing so, turns Shepherd’s pie into Cottage pie! Now, look, if you enjoy lamb, use it! I

Baked Mac and Cheese

The Great Mac & Cheese debate has worked my dang nerves! “I like it dry!” “Creamy!” “American cheese has to be in it!” “No processed cheese!!” If y’all don’t sit down somewhere! Goodness!

Southern Cornbread Dressing

When it comes to homemade dressing, my mother is Beyoncé. No, seriously. Everyone who has ever tasted her dressing falls in love. So, when the Cookies asked for a Southern Cornbread Dressing recipe I got nervous instantly! Like come on! How am I gonna top Beyoncé‘s recipe? Like how?? Then, I remembered. Coop is Beyoncé‘s child.

Creamy Pastalaya

I don’t know what it is about cooler weather and Halloween that makes me want Pastalaya. It’s just what I like to eat while watching “Hocus Pocus”.
