There are two categories, Traditional and
Traditional dishes are the old favorites that have been the staple of
South Louisiana for many years. The Modern recipes may be variations of
the traditional or just good old good eatin' the South Louisiana Way.
All recipes on this site are either my own, or, submitted by visitors
such as yourself.
If you would like to contribute a recipe please follow the simple
I would like a good explanation of how to prepare the dish, and, if
you have a picture or two of the dish send it also but this is
optional. Look at how the
recipes are explained on this site to get an idea of what I'm talking
about (I can help with that).
- The recipes must be your own, or, of a family member or friend. Please
do not copy recipes from cookbooks or other publications, they
are copyrighted and protected by law.
- The recipe must be of Louisiana origin please, and, should be
identified as a
traditional or modern dish. I would like to keep the recipes "Authentic
South Louisiana" if at all possible.
- You should have cooked and/or eaten the dish yourself (and liked it)!
If the recipe is in the "Modern" category go ahead and
give it a catchy name if you wish.
Finally our visitors would like to hear a little story behind the origin of
a Traditional dish as you came to know it, for instance; your grandmother cooks the
dish every Saturday for the family. This is not mandatory.
Don't worry if you already see a recipe here like the one you want to
submit, I want different versions of the same dish too!
If you don't have the exact amount of an ingredient make your closest
guess. Many old recipes I've seen give you what the ingredient is to be
and not how much of it to use.
I will only indicate your first initial, last
name and the Parish you live in, your privacy will always be
respected. You may also give yourself a (clean) nickname. I
will not put your whole name unless you ask. You must be a present
or past resident of Louisiana.
Please type your recipe in Microsoft Word, Works, Notepad, or
even Excel. You can also copy and paste it directly into an email.
You may also mail a copy of the recipe, and, if you have regular paper
pictures you can send them via regular mail also. I'll return the pictures
