Good Morning NOLA! It’s Monday morning so up and at ’em! Through 5pm: Partly cloudy with temperatures steady near the low 90s. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Partly cloudy early followed by scattered thunderstorms this afternoon. Heat index near 105F. High 93F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%. Scattered thunderstorms early, then partly cloudy after midnight. Low 79F. Winds SW at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 40%. This city never sleeps so don’t miss a thing . I hope your  plans include music.  It is good for the soul. The weather should cooperate so get out and enjoy.  The week ahead looks a little iffy. Don’t worry about those scattered showers over the week ahead, all in all looks great. Just keep the poncho or the umbrella handy in case.  The Friends of the Cabildo have decided they love me, so the book siginings at the 1850’s House Store will continue on and off indefinitely.  They have books in the store and I am back in the Quarter and having a ball. So make plans to come out and get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  You can also find them at the Great Artist Collective and Adorn Art, both on Royal Street. NOLA Kids on Chartres also has them.  I’ll keep you posted on dates. Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

What did you think of The Princess and the Frog?

I am from Louisiana, down in the south, and I absolutely LOVED the movie. I felt like it really captured the culture of New Orleans and the surrounding areas. The Mardi Gras part was extremely accurate as well, and I really appreciated how Disney really got their facts straight with this one. The Shreveport joke was absolutely amazing, too! I just wanted to know what people who weren’t from Louisiana thought of it and I wanted to know if they understood the little jokes that my friends and I laughed out loud for.

I loved it! I liked the music and was interested in how it looked like the original Disney films. I’m not from Louisiana, but I did like the cultural exposition in the story. I probably wouldn’t have understood the jokes, but it was a funny movie! The ending made me want to cry because it was so sweet and happy.

B & B Inns: The Best Food You'll Ever Eat

Well, some of you Bed & Breakfast innkeepers missed a golden opportunity. I went to websites of inns best known for their food, but no entrees were even mentioned. How can it be that an award-winning inn for their breakfast doesn’t describe any breakfast? So I went to websites that proudly described their dishes. Here are a few of them.

The Buttonwood Inn is in a small New Hampshire town called North Conway, but nothing about their breakfast is small. They may begin with some Pumpkin-Walnut bread or Apricot-Orange scones, Maple Cinnamon rolls, Blueberry-Walnut Crumb Coffee Cake, or warm Fruit Crisp with granola, accompanied by cool, fresh fruit topped with raspberry sauce . That would be enough breakfast for me, but the chef is just getting warmed up. Next comes a savory dish like Mushroom-Sausage and Cheddar Cheese Strata, Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese and Chives and a side of roasted Red Bliss Rosemary potatoes. Then comes the sweet entrée: Baked French Toast Casserole with Pecan and Wild Maine Blueberry topping. Or Light Yeasted Belgian waffles under fresh blueberry sauce. Hail to Buttonwood.

Mission Oak Inn of Henry, Illinois offers some wonderful breakfast dishes like French Banana Crepes and fabulous Blueberry Pancakes, but it was their dinners that snapped me to attention. How about a Pizza of roasted chicken, onion, and cheese atop a dreamy creamy sun-dried tomato sauce? Or tender meat medallions served in a cream, brandy, maple and mustard reduction? Or grilled salmon on fresh greens with original sauce and topped by bacon, green onions, parmesan cheese, and walnuts? Or pork tenderloin marinated in apple cider, grilled, then smothered with homemade apple/peach chutney?

Then I happened to catch Jane of the Hawk Valley Retreat on the phone. When I asked about her most popular dishes, her voice became secretive and sultry and she led me lovingly down the list: German Baked Apple Pancakes, Baked Peach French Toast, pancakes with a brown sugar/strawberry compote, Green Onion and Spinach Cheese Quiche with hash brown crust, and Eggs Benedict with her own secret Hollandaise sauce recipe. The names of her entrees didn’t bowl me over. But as she described every detail, every ingredient and spice, I knew cooking isn’t just fun for her, it is a luscious adventure. There’s a difference. Jane is a master of simple baking.

Like many of these top inns, the chefs at the Bloomsbury Inn use only fresh local farm products. I never expected a South Carolina inn to be full of such scientifically talented people. But they’ve experimented with hundreds of dishes, and the creativity of their top picks boggles the imagination: hot apple soup, poached pears and baked peaches with toasted peanut butter rolls, creamed eggs in a puff pastry, baked cinnamon-raisin French toast, toasted bacon-pecan bread, homemade biscuits with chocolate gravy, peppered praline bacon, and their own version of Eggs Benedict: a delicate crème sauce over croissant, wilted spinach, peppered ham, avocado, and poached egg. Exquisite.

Sue of the Harbour Ridge Inn in Osage was not about to be outdone. She emailed me with her choices, and I appreciated the personal attention. Sue serves fruitinis in martini glasses with a white chocolate mousse base on which she slices banana. Then she pours in Chambord-soaked strawberries with a dollop of whipping cream and a mint leaf for garnish. She does the

Bloomsbury Inn one better by nesting her Cinnamon-Raisin French toast atop a whipping cream custard base accompanied by sausage loaf and delicate poached pears in red wine and orange juice. Another popular French toast starts with fresh grilled pineapple slices, country ham, sliced cheese. Add sourdough bread soaked in French toast batter, grilled and served with a strawberry-jalapeno pepper jam. She also makes egg casserole to order with choices of fresh stuff like roasted red peppers, leeks, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, spinach, diced ham, cheeses and fresh basil and dill. I was impressed. Nice email.

The Judge Porter House in Natchitoches (where?), Louisiana it not to be missed. The first course at the judge’s might be peach or apple dumplings, bread pudding with warm maple sauce, Peach Crisp baked with a coconut-pecan topping, Apple Brown Betty topped with vanilla yogurt, pecans, and cinnamon, or Berry Puff Pastry stuffed with fresh berries, drizzled with raspberry sauce, and topped with whipped cream. The second course may include delicious pancakes, waffles or French toast, but I featured those things in other reviews so let me emphasize the egg dishes. One baked egg dish features eggs with savory mushrooms and crème Francais cradled in Black Forest ham crisps. Another favorite is Southwestern egg mixture baked in individual ramekins and topped with hearty salsa. Then there’s the Queen Anne Quiche, but the chef was very hush-hush about it. Guess you’ll have to visit the judge’s to check it out.

The two most attractive things Bed & Breakfasts offer are cozy, top rate lodging and the best breakfast ever. Check out these terrific inns.

Good Morning NOLA!  It is partly cloudy today with a thirty percent chance of rain so look for a few showers here and there. It shouldn’t be a really warm seventy four degrees.  We still have some scattered thunderstorms in the forecast for tomorrow so we have to resort to carrying an umbrella for Thursday as well as Friday and Saturday of this week. Let’s hope it just passes us by. Saturday brings us a seventy percent chance of rain but clearing for Sunday. This trend should take us through Mardi Gras which overall has been pretty awesome weatherwise. What a great time to be in the Big Easy.  Sunday also seems to be the coolest day and night in the forecast and wouldn’t know I will be working background on an out door shoot .  The high is only going to be sixty-three with the lows back in the forties. I’m sure I will survive.  Have a great day and enjoy whatever you decide to do today.  See you in NOLA!

Oil Spill Fact’s; Breathtaking HD footage of Gulf water sports with a message.

My name is John Lieurance and I made this fact filled film to educate and inspire an appropriate response to this disaster. Please share this video with as many people as you can! Lets make a difference together to save the Gulf marine environment. Please donate to Mote Marine! Goto mote.org

The latest facts, stats, pictures and maps for the BP oil spill, its size, its impacts on wildlife, and the efforts at containment and cleanup in the Gulf of Mexico.

The explosion of the Transocean Deepwater Horizon rig on April 20 killed 11 people and led to the BP oil spill — the largest in U.S. history — that threatens coastal Louisiana, Gulf Coast fisheries, Gulf of Mexico ecosystems, and perhaps the East Coast, as the spill reaches the loop current.

Here, you’ll find updates about the impacts to animals, fish, birds and seafood in the Gulf of Mexico, about the efforts at containment and cleanup, facts about the oil leak’s size, as well as pictures, video, maps and more.

You’ll also find information about how to help, and about individuals who have dedicated their lives to protecting the oceans from just such a disaster.

The Size of the Spill

5,000 to 60,000 barrels a day: Rate at which oil is leaking from the Deepwater Horizon rig. Some experts now believe that original estimates of 5,000 barrels a day (that’s 210,000 gallons) were way off. And BP says that it’s likely that the leak rate is around 60,000 barrels (2.5 million gallons) a day. (Source: Los Angeles Times)

19 million to 39 million gallons: Amount of oil leaked into the Gulf of Mexico in the month since the Deepwater Horizon spill. (Source: Huffington Post)

11,300 miles: The distance around the world the current amount of leaked oil would stretch if it was placed in milk jugs lined up side by side. To quantify, that’s farther than New York to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and back. (Source: New York Times)

102: The number of school gymnasiums that could theoretically be filled floor-to-ceiling with oil from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. (Source: New York Times)
