Baked Potato with Crab Au Gratin Topping

Crab Au Gratin is probably Beryl’s all-time favorite seafood dish, so last week when we went out to eat at Mike Anderson’s Seafood Restaurant, there was little doubt what Beryl was going to order.

(Mike Anderson’s has some awesome Crab Au Gratin, along with everything else that is pretty awesome!)

Well, what this did was whet Beryl’s appetite for some more…

Every Saturday night, we video something that Beryl cooks for our Cajun Cooking TV show, that airs on WLFT-TV in Baton Rouge every Monday night (and Tuesday morning).

So, what did she cook on Saturday night this week?

You guessed it – Crab Au Gratin.

How to Cook Like a Cajun From the Bayou Country

beryl and alex

I thought I might starve to death.

I had met the sweetest girl I’ve ever known, and we were about to move to Florida together. That was the good news…

The bad news was that about the only thing she could cook was frozen Eggo waffles. And she burned them sometimes.

One time she was boiling some water on the stove, forgot about it I guess, and melted an expensive stainless steel pot.

It sounded like a shotgun going off in the kitchen when that melted steel hit the red-hot electric coils on the stove-top and exploded. I hit the floor wondering who was shooting at us!

Another time she bought some live crabs to cook up to surprise me, bless her heart.

I came home to find her chasing the crabs around the kitchen with a hammer, trying to subdue them to get them in the pot.

But she was a sweet young Cajun girl, and she was determined to learn how to cook proper food for her family.

You may know someone just like Beryl was back then …

Fortunately, Beryl learned how to cook over the years and makes it look easy now.

(Beryl and I got married and have been together 30 years now.)

Maybe you’re a newlywed and need a crash-course in how to make “simple” but great-tasting meals for your family…

Or, maybe you’re already pretty good in the kitchen, but would like to learn how to do some down home Louisiana Cajun cooking to add some variety to your menu lineup.

Either way, Beryl has put together 96 great Louisiana home-cooking recipes that you can prepare for your family and friends right away.

Roux 61 Baton Rouge Review

Roux 61 Restaurant Review


Roux 61

Roux 61

Roux 61 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is a somewhat new restaurant in the city that is located in the former Boutin’s Cajun restaurant location on Bluebonnet Blvd.

Although new to Baton Rouge, Roux 61 got its start in historic Natchez, Mississippi. The Roux 61 in Baton Rouge made a few changes to the inside and out of the building, but still provides a rustic and South Louisiana vibe.

Probably our biggest melancholy moment was entering for the first time after moving to this side of town and realizing that the once iconic Cajun dance floor had been removed and turned into a full size bar and char-grilled oyster mega space.

Triple Berry Bread Pudding

[ 0 ] July 18, 2016

Triple Berry Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is mainstay dessert item on restaurant menus in Louisiana.  Bread pudding comes in many different forms, but it’s basically bread, cream, sugar, eggs, raisins, and cinnamon.

Triple Berry Bread Pudding

I was never a fan of bread pudding as a child growing up in Springfield, Louisiana.  My mom used to make it when our loaf of white Holsum sandwich bread got stale.  I just thought she was re-purposing old bread and I didn’t like the taste or the custard texture either.

Many years later, I had bread pudding for the first time in a restaurant in Baton Rouge.  The featured dessert was bread pudding with a whiskey sauce.  I was still not a fan, but it was very good.

Homemade Cajun Seasoning Salt-Free

Beryl’s Homemade Cajun Seasoning (Salt-Free)

Beryl's Cajun Seasoning Everybody knows that good Cajun food is “highly seasoned”, or “spicy”, but do you know what “highly seasoned” and “spicy” really mean? Most people think that “spicy” means “hot” – as in lots of red pepper or like a jalapeno pepper. Not so fast…

In Cajun and Creole cooking, “highly seasoned” and “spicy” means we use lots of seasonings (spices) to add lots of flavor to our dishes. They are not necessarily “hot with pepper”.

As you go through our recipes, you’ll notice that many (if not most) call for Cajun Seasoning, or “Tony’s”.

LuLu’s Gulf Shores Alabama Review

[ 0 ] June 28, 2016

Lucy Buffett’s LuLu’s in Gulf Shores AL

Lulu's Gulf Shores ALBucket List item crossed off the list – go to LuLu’s in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

Mike has wanted to check out the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama area for some time now, however for the past 10 years we always find ourselves in Panama City Beach, Florida because we love the Holiday Inn Resort there, plus all of great places to eat.

Orange Beach is a bit shorter drive from Baton Rouge, so when Jimmy Buffett announced he was doing a show there, we knew it was time to hit the road on over to Alabama…
