My favorite family cooking traditions

Kickin' Collard Greens
almost as good as the ham hock version momma made.. way quicker, way easier! added cider vinegar, tabasco, brwn sugar, tony's cajun spice; works great in the searing type slow cooker - one pot, quick N easy!

Good New Orleans Creole Gumbo
THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE!! I followed directions, EXCEPT: 1. 60 min of whisking roux to get deep rich color. 2. at the point between adding veggies and adding the seafood I cooled it and kept in fridge for the next day. Next day prior to dinner, I re-heated the gumbo and resumed with the recipe. 4. Lastly, i separated gumbo prior to adding seafood for a son with shellfish allergies. His had the sausage and added dark turkey meat. Re: cajun spice and Tabasco-added only 1/2 the amt of the spice and put Tabasco on table for individual taste adjustments. My superbowl crowd came back for seconds and thirds. IF you have leftovers, it IS better the next day. This gumbo was as good as Brennan's or Antoine's. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Jelly Bean Nests
Pretty table deco! Used Rice Noodles instead of chow mein.. they are smaller. also added cocoa powder and peanut butter to the mix for some flavor, altho I thought the crispy nests a little too crispy after setting up. Hubby has been taking care of leftover nests this week.
