Colleges in Louisiana that offer Forensic Science as a major include Loyola, Our Lady of the Lake, and McNeese State. Of those, Loyola is by far the best.
Colleges in LA that offer Criminal Justice as a major are listed here: http://www.uscollegesearch.org/louisiana-criminal-justice-colleges.html (under "Additional Louisiana Criminal Justice Colleges"–starting with Bossier Parish CC)
Most colleges, especially large ones, will have a music minor.

Good Morning NOLA!  Happy Hump Day in the Crescent City to you guys. Spring has always been my favorite time to be in the Quarter. Our  high will be in the eighties today.  It is great weather to get out and do something. There will be some clouds today and possibly a stray shower or two even though the chance is only ten percent today.  It never hurts to keep the umbrella handy even though the sun is back and will stay with us until probably mid-week.  There is still lots going on in the city as usual.  Easter week is here.  I’m thinking a crawfish boil for Good Friday sounds awesome.  Jazz Fest is just around the corner and the line-up looks awesome as usual.  I will  be at the 1850’s House Store sigining books in a couple of weeks. I will let you know exact dates as I get them. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

The weather should cooperate so get out and enjoy.  The week ahead looks pretty good. Don’t worry about those scattered showers over the week ahead but all in all looks great. The book siginings at the 1850’s House Store went great. They still have books in the store and I will be back in the Quarter soon. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!

Good Morning NOLA!  Here comes the sun!   But don’t let it fool you, the high for today is only 45.  Brrrr!  Tomorrow will be slightly warmer at around 52,  with lows around freezing tonight and tomorrow.  Take the necessary precautions.  remember the three “P’s” .Be sure to protect plants, pets, and pipes! Bundle up if you are heading out doors.  There are people to see, places to go and things to do.  For you home bodies planning on stayng in, go ahead and get that soup or big pot of gumbo going.  You will be glad to have when the temperature starts dropping tonight. While you are stirring the pot at least open the blinds at let some of that beautiiful sunshine in. Soak it up while we have it.  My plan is to start that soup, but I’m not staying in today.  The beginning of next week brings showers and scattered thunderstorms, but the upside is it also brings a little bit warmer temps our way.   Have a great day!  I’ll see you in NOLA!

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! And the rain is back. Partly cloudy this morning with evening showers for your hump day.  There is a seventy percent chance of rain for the Big Easy today.  Showers are building this morning with a drop in the temps tonight after the front comes thru.  Today highs are in the upper fifties but back in the thirties for your overnight low.  Cooler tomorrow and below freezing for tomorrow night.  The good news is the rain will move out with the passing of the front at least until the middle of the week next week.  If we can get through the weekend should be nice.  Sunny and cool, perfect to be out and about soaking up some vitamin D while we can.  Remember that Valentine’s Day is around the corner, get out and pick up something for your sweetie.  You can always come see me at the OCH Market on Saturday and grab a signed copy of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!”.  I will have my new book also. “If I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  See you in NOLA!
