New Orleans Stew with Smoked Andouille Chicken Sausage
This was very good. Family loved it. We like spicy foods and I even added a bit more cayenne than the recipe called for. I followed the recipe as written with the substitution of white potatoes in lieu of sweet potatoes (didn't have any on hand). Hubby thought sauce was a little thin so he made a pot of rice and we served it over rice. Sorta has a gumbo feel with a different flavor. Great's a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

Garlic Salmon
Have made this twice now. Once for the family and then for my book club . It was a hit both times. Very easy to make and it makes a great presentation. This will be a regular in our household. Thanks for sharing!

Boudreaux's Zydeco Stomp Gumbo
I had been using the same gumbo recipe for over 20 years when I came across this recipe. I decided to make it based solely on the number of positive reviews it has received. Well it is now my new gumbo recipe. This was wonderful.....the taste is outstanding. It does require a bit of prep time. After reading many of the reviews I decided to stay with the amount of broth in the recipe. So glad I did. Many stated it was runny, but luckily I didn't encounter that issue. Most likely because I increased the amount of both meats and the shrimp. We are serious carnivores! And since my sweetie was born and raised in Louisiana I had to add okra and 2 tablespoons of file ( can't imagine making gumbo without it). Since the file also acts as a thickening agent the consistency was perfect. I also didn't encounter the issue others mentioned of it being oily. The roux came out a beautiful brown color. I used a can of Stella Artois beer, and Slap Your Mama Cajun seasoning. I did not use the total amount of seasoning, simply because the broth, meat and sausage also added flavor. I believe it would have been too salty. The man from Louisiana said it was one of the best gumbo's he has ever had! Thank you for sharing!
