Cajun Inspired Dinner! Congratulations to Camille Wilkinson & her Team! What's New on YouTube?

Lately, I've been hosting dinner parties for friends and clients. It is always fun to figure out what the "theme" of the meal is going to be. Having lived in South Louisiana for several decades, the Cajun flavors make their way onto the table pretty often. Serving Seafood Gumbo with a side of potato salad has become a requested favorite. This meal featured gumbo, potato salad, South Louisiana white rice, crusty French bread and a Tarte a la Bouille (custard) pie.

If you want to serve a wine with this dinner, I'd suggest a Prosecco. The sweet & bubbly flavor offers a perfect contrast to the spicy gumbo! Die-hard gumbo fans may prefer a cold beer or iced tea with the meal! It is your choice!

I encourage you to get adventurous in your kitchen and plan some themed meals for your family. This is the perfect way to introduce them to new foods and teach them about different cultures. Check out my YouTube channel for these cajun inspired recipes! Click here!

In the Book Corner!

I am finishing up this Frances Mayes' book, Under the Tuscan Sun. For those of you that love to travel, this is a great read for you. Unlike the movie of the same name, the book details the historical aspects of Tuscany and the surrounding area. The author becomes a bit obsessed with Etruscan tombs and takes the reader on a tour of numerous sites in Italy.

In addition there are recipes throughout the book that you can try! I have enjoyed this one.

I have 5 books waiting for me to dive in and I'll be sharing my favorites with you. What are you reading these days? Do you read to learn, read to escape or a little of both?

I can always tell when I meet a voracious reader. Their use of exquisite language is usually a reflection of time spent with books.
