Living in a "foodie" city like New Orleans, it's hard not to be interested in food! Cooking and dining out are such an integral part of life here. The extra pounds that they create are also very much in evidence on me :-( I love trying new places and then attempting to reproduce my favorites.
Most folks don't yet know that our post-Katrina restaurant scene is as vibrant as ever. We actually have MORE restaurants open now than B4. All of you foodies should come on down!
I am always more than happy to e-mail with anyone planning a trip here.
Living in a 250 sq ft FEMA trailer on my lawn is now much further back in memory & my cooking has returned to what it was before we began our many-months-long "camp out."
Bread machine experiments-- I like using the dough cycle then baking in the conventional oven on a stone, rather than baking in the machine itself. We love Middle Eastern dishes, and we also do a lot of marinating and grilling. We really eat the 'recommended' servings of fruit and veggies every day-grilling the veggies makes them very appealing, and i sometimes even use the grilled ones to make sandwiches on foccacia.
One of my favorite New Orleans restaurants is Commander's Palace-we especially like the jazz brunches on weekends. Irene's in the Fr Quarter is also a top notch place to eat. When we are not in such a spendy mood, there are soooo many small, but excellent and economical places for seafood and ethnic fare--love Middle Eastern--Lebanon's Cafe, Babylon, Byblos, and our favorite of them all-Mona's on Banks St, where I also shop their grocery and where I get the best fresh whole wheat pitas ever. For easy, casual seafood we like the Acme Oyster House in the Quarter and Middendorf's in Pass Manchac, a nice drive west of town.
