I decided to make this gumbo recipe on Valentines Day for my boyfriend from Louisiana...yes that takes a lot of faith in my fellow reviewers! I followed the recipe with the exception of adding 1 extra stalk of celery and 1 tablespoon of the Creole seasoning (instead of to taste cuz I had no idea what it was supposed to take like). WELL...My boyfriend called his mom in Louisiana after tasting my gumbo to tell her how amazing it was. Wahoo!!! Thank you to the author of this recipe. I served it with a blend of white and brown rice and a side of potato salad (heavy on the mustard) as they do in New Orleans. Thank you!!! Can't wait to make it again. ****My roux cooked for in excess of 30 minutes though...took a lot longer to reach that dark color than 10 minutes****
