Louis hopes for some crumbs!
About this Cook
I was born in Louisiana but currently live in Saint Louis, Missouri. I never knew how much i would miss the food that i was raised on, until i moved to the midwest 3 years ago. I have made it my mission to try and learn the recipes from my family to share with my co-workers and friends up here. Midwest food is pretty much bland and boring, so pretty much anything i make from back home tastes awesome up here!!
My favorite things to cook
comfort food!!!
My cooking tragedies
still trying to poach an egg. my failures have single handedly fueled the poultry industry.

Pepperoncini Beef
So easy and delicious!!! If you are looking for the perfect lazy Sunday crock pot recipe - this is it! I took the others advice and added a quartered yellow onion. I also added a sprinkle of italian seasoning (not too much!), and a few shakes of Tony Chacherie's Instant Brown Gravy powder to thicken up the juice a bit. We put the shredded meat/pepperoncinis/onion mix on hoagie rolls, topped with provolone cheese and broiled the sandwich for a few minutes to crisp the bread edges and melt the cheese. **** to make this sandwich pop - we added a little horseradish sandwich sauce (use in place of mayo)*** and holy moly - amazing!

Southern Pecan Pie II
This pecan pie is very easy to make and tastes wonderful. I never knew making a pie crust from scratch could be so easy. Even i couldn't mess it up!! Hint - if you don't have time to make the crust and want to use frozen premade - make sure to use the "deep dish" ones because this recipe yields a large amount of filling.
