Home-Cooked Dinners

Deep in the piney woods of central Louisiana the old timers call the noon time meal dinner, not lunch. What we more modern individuals call dinner; back home they call it supper. No matter what you call it, the following dishes are delish any time of the day.  


Chicken Sauce Piquant with Louisiana jasmine rice

 Chicken & Dumplings

Mama D’s Meatloaf over green beans and potatoes

Shrimp & Cheese Grits







Crock Pot Creations

For all those under used crock pots, taking up valuable cupboard space, I prepare one pot meals that are just perfect for busy weeknights.  Order three at a time, these dishes freeze beautifully. Thaw them the night before, in your fridge, and then that morning, simply pop it into your trusty crock pot.
