Louisiana Cooking

how to cook for one person and i live in louisiana!?

i was in a twenty year relationship, but that is now in the past i’m 44 a really good cook .but can not figure out how to cook for one person. i’am from and live now in new orleans and love all the great food here. i’m in a slump and need help to figure this out .thanks tony

Tune into the Food Network and learn to cook for one. Not that difficult, although some people believe it may be cheaper to eat out I don’t follow that logic!
Louisiana has some of the best seafood in the US! Can’t be that hard.

Louisiana Culinary Trails – Delta Delights

Rich farmland, recreational waterways and scenic highways dominate Northeast Louisiana. This side of the Delta still lays claim to unspoiled and undeveloped backroads that take modern day explorers back in time. It’s all about Southern tradition in this neck of the Great Southern Pine Forest, where many of the go-to eateries have been in continuous operation for at least a half-century. Grab a map and head off to discover one of the nearby rural treasures within an hour’s drive of Monroe/West Monroe. Slow down, relax, and enjoy a perfectly seasoned Southern dish — from frog legs to fricassée — prepared from a distinctive recipe passed down for generations.

revising mon français? Part 2?

I translated a lready, if you could please just revise it and tell me if something is wrong that would be great!!!

Aujour’hui la difference entre la cuisine Creole et la cuisine Cajun est très floue.
Les deux cuisiner le gombo et la jambalaya; mais les Creoles ajoutent plus tomates et les Cajuns préférent plus roux.
Maintenant, les deux cultures mélangent et créent: la cuisine de la Louisiane.

english to that is: today the difference between creole food and cajun food is really blurred.
both cook gumbo and jambalaya; but the creoles add more tomato and the cajuns prefer more roux.
now, both cultures mix and create Louisiana cooking.

Aussi, le monde culinaire a beaucoup des chefs qui sont, ou ils ont famille, de la Louisianne.
–Certaines personnes sont: Emeril Lagasse, Paul Prudhomme, Rachael Ray, Sandra Lee, et plus.La cuisine de la Louisiane est si célèbre, il y a des restaurants Creole ou Cajun.
Par exemple: Popeyes et Kelly’s Cajun Grill.

english part;
Also, the culinary world has a lot of chefs that are from, or have family, from Louisiana
Some people are: lalalala, and more.
Louisiana cooking is so famous , there are creold or cajun restaurants:
for exemple: la and la.

THANKS so much if you helped 🙂
i put this question into two parts so whoever helped gets 20 points and not just 10 – forgive my horrible english please!

Aussi, le monde culinaire a beaucoup de chefs qui sont originaires de la Louisiane ou bien qui y ont de la famille.
– C’est le cas des personnes suivantes: Emeril Lagasse, Paul Prudhomme, Rachael Ray, Sandra Lee, et d’autres. La cuisine de la Louisiane est si célèbre qu’ il y a des restaurants Créoles ou Cajuns un peu partout, par exemple: Popeyes et Kelly’s Cajun Grill.

Good try! I have corrected the turns of phrase that were clumsy and put the correct accents in.

Making Louisiana Pralines with Momma

My mother makes pralines like no one else. The pecans taste roasted, not raw, and the sugar has a complex flavor beyond basic caramelized sugar. They’re much better than the ones you buy in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The difference is in the techniques she demonstrates here.

Georgia Health Insurance Helps Members of the Peach State Become More Healthy

Georgia has just been named in the top 10 for one of the unhealthiest states in the nation. Georgia is ranked No. 6 on the list following just Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These rankings were done judging each state on twenty-one different factors ranging from cancer rates to obesity. Georgia has recently leaped into the top ten in the past ten years, with Georgia being 24 sports higher at No. 30 less than ten years ago. Georgia has been ranked fourth in the number new AIDS cases per year, and firth for the number of sexually transmitted diseases. Just these two new statistics it’s enough to send anyone living in the Peach State packing. Besides the spread of STD’s one of the main reasons why people living in the Peach State are considered some of the most unhealthy in the country is because of an unhealthy lifestyle as well as a high-fat diet which is putting a lot of people down south at risk.

High-fat diets are known to have levels much higher than the levels advised by the American Heart Association, which can over time, cause cardiac or heart problems. Problems like there are very serious and can lead to very serious surgeries such as heart bypass surgery. For people who are going to continue to state on their high-fat diets, and even for people who don’t that live in Georgia, it is very important for them to have some type of Georgia Health Insurance. Georgia being one of the most unhealthy states in the nation gives good reason for residents to have a good Georgia Health Insurance plan especially a plan which include well-visit check ups as well as any type of testing or screening that may be important to screen for such serious ailments such as heart disease.

Here few ways that nutritionists recommend that residents of Georgia can change their lifestyle in order to become more healthy. One of the easiest ways is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your life. Fruits and vegetables are relatively inexpensive and they are also very good for you, when purchasing fruits and vegetables remember that the darker the fruit or vegetable, the better it will be for you. This is because the darker it is the more nutrients it will hold. Also, eating raw vegetables such as tomato, or lettuce is better for you than cooking them because they will retain all of the nutrients they are grown with, opposed to cooking or frying them which may lead to decrease in amount of nutrients.

Another way that residents of Georgia can become more healthy and safe is by purchasing Georgia health insurance. There are more than 45 million people across the country with health insurance, and many of those people are located in Georgia. Having some type of Georgia Health Insurance is imperative for residents to live a happy and stress-free lifestyle.

What can I cook for supper tonight????

I need something that will fill up my husband and I am tired of cooking the same old stuff like Rice and gravy and meat. We live in Southern Louisiana so he like heavy food but I want to try something new. Can you give me some ideas????

My mom used to make Shepherd’s Pie for supper. It’s relatively simple and tends to go over well with men.
In a 9 x 13 pan, place a layer of browned hamburger in the bottom. Follow that with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup. Then, layer a vegetable (like corn or green beans), and finally top off with mashed potatotes. It may sound crazy, but it is delicious
