Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Lived in cajun country for over 15years, love the food, have made gumbo myself for 20+ years. Tried this recipe (except I used olive oil instead of bacon grease) Best gumbo I've ever made. Exactly what it tastes like in my favorite Louisiana dives, this is a keeper! Very authentic. Would probably be better with the bacon grease, but I was fresh out of bacon...

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
This is the same recipe my mom used forever. My favorite cake (have had people that didn't like carrot cake like this one) I usually leave the pecans out of the cake and either just mix them with the icing, or press them into the sides of the frosted cake. Can also substitute all or part of the oil with applesauce to save alot of fat/calories and still taste great. I've also used lower fat cream cheese (don't use fat free). Great recipe!

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
My fav bran muffin recipe. Instead of the carrots/fruit listed I use whatever I have on hand, bananas, apples, applesauce or even canned pumpkin. I've found if I use overripe pears the muffins turn out wonderfully sweet. Today I'm making pumpkin, since I've no fruit on hand.
