Cajun Farre Loose Meat Sandwich


Ever heard of a Cajun Farre dressing sandwich?

Probably not, because while it is pretty common in some areas of Louisiana, even often being served as a sandwich spread at parties, as a funeral food and yes, even wedding receptions, it's still not well known even across all of Louisiana, and certainly not the Southern region.

Well... we're gonna change that!

Corn Dodgers

Hand-formed pones of dense and sturdy fried cornmeal patties, a perfect companion for a bowl of greens and pot likker.

If you look up corn dodgers on the internet, you'll find a huge variety of recipes that may differ significantly from one another.

I suppose that's true of a lot of dishes in Southern cooking - like corn casseroles for instance. In truth, it really all depends on one thing, and one thing only.

What you grew up with and how your Mama cooked things!

I love fish! Some of my favorites include Mississippi farm raised catfish, of course, as well as the bounty from our beloved Mississippi Sound and Gulf of Mexico. 

White trout, speckled trout, redfish, mackerel, snapper, red drum, grouper, even good ole ground mullet and Biloxi Bacon aka striped popeye mullet or jumping mullet, are just some of the fish that are found here, and frankly most of us from here were just about weaned on it all from birth!

Here's another great shrimp recipe from New Orleans!

It is said to have originated at Commander's Palace, sometime in the late 1980s, where it was prepared table-side and flamed with cognac for effect. Those table-side presentations are pretty exciting!

As far as I know this dish is no longer offered at the restaurant, although I haven't been to Commander's in too many years, so don't hold me to that!!

Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad

A classic tomato salad with sweet onion and cucumber and a nicely balanced vinegar based dressing.

Cucumber Tomato and Onion Salad


I love cucumber, tomato and onion salad combinations and I eat them constantly over these hot summers, so I am always playing around with them.

It's pretty amazing how subtle changes in the same basic ingredients can completely alter the texture and taste in them and the dressing on this one is a great balance between tart and sweet to me.

Summer cookouts are in full swing, so we've been sharing on our social media some of those favorite beverages, salads, sides, mains and desserts that we all love to have when it's cookout time - even, yes, for those of us who don't really cook outside much!

We share regularly on social media during the week, but unfortunately, algorithms keep a lot of those posts hidden from our members there - even those who have actively "liked" the page! I've starting duplicating some of those shares in roundups right here on my website to let you know what you may have missed.

Johnny Marzetti Casserole - My Way

My version of Johnny Marzetti, a well-loved baked casserole originating in Ohio, made with ground beef and pork, the trinity of southern cooking, tomato soup, mushrooms, egg noodles and cheese.

I know, I know... it's HOT! But this is one of my favorite casseroles to make, and I've made it twice here recently, so yeah, I'm sharing it, right in the heat of the summer.

Besides, it's a terrific potluck carry too that everybody enjoys.

There is something about the combination of textures and flavors here that make this an outstanding meal anytime of the year and perfect if you have a countertop oven (#ad), which is what I use the most these days anyway, especially in the summer.

Purple hull peas are my favorite southern pea!

They are part of the group of peas, that are really beans, and something that we love so much in the South. It's a summer favorite among many of us.

They are easy to grow too and easier to shell than they used to be when an afternoon of shelling once yielded sore and purple fingers!

Air Fryer Baby Back Ribs

Baby back ribs, sprinkled with a dry rib rub and air fried with sauce applied in the last minutes of cooking.

Air Fryer Baby Back Ribs


Y'all, I swear. If I hadn't tried it for myself, I never would have believed you could successfully prepare baby back ribs - in an air fryer!

What??

In fact, the first time I made them I thought surely it was a fluke. So I tried it again.

Sure enough, it's true! And they are good y'all.
