Welcome to the recipe box filled with classic family recipes.
Some of my recipes are more directions then actual recipes.I learned to cook from my Mom. Most of the time unless baking she would say – a pinch,a handful,until your water reach a certain level. Most the time it worked – so give it a try.

Ingredient for our kabob
On the grill- about 30 minutes or until beef temperature 130 (depending on dines of meat).Placed on direct heat until browned and then indirect heat.
When the weather is in the 40’s it’s
Gumbo time in Louisiana
My family is a big fan of gumbo but to tell the truth iam not a big fan! I know it’s hard to believe but it’s the truth.
Gumbo is fairly easy to make-most hardest thing to do is make a roux that needs to cook until dark brown. (Emeril says 2 beers) lol.
Then add trinty,garilc ,parsley,stock and meat.Season to taste. Let cook. Lisa
